the mood to venture around one glorious sunny afternoon, I got on the
train from Nice and headed to the commune of Eze along the seaside a short
distance away from the Principality of Monaco.|
Although I had been through the area many times by train and car over the years, I’ve never taken the time before to explore the villages of Eze-sur-Mer (where Bono from U2 has a home) and Eze-Village perched 1401 feet above sea level.
Another focus of this afternoon trip was to hike between the two villages on the famous Nietzsche Trail.
off the train at Eze-sur-Mer, my first impressions were of how quaint, clean
and quiet everything seemed to be. At
the train station was also an Eze Tourism office and across the small
parking lot was the bus stop where the bus that came along would take me up to
This is also the same bus that can take you to the bus stop at St. Laurent - Eze gay nude beach if you would like and it only takes about 5 minutes to get there.
|It was nice to see some of the owners sitting outside enjoying the afternoon sun conversing with anyone who passed by and they have a wealth of information about Eze-Village.|
|This is also a great vantage point to see the rest of the village and Eze Bridge below which also has its own fabled story to tell and of which can be seen in the Alfred Hitchcock movie, To Catch A Thief.|
|The path winds down the side of the mountain giving you some amazing views along the way from a variety of points, the trail is clearly marked and there are even small stripes of paint that indicate it is the main trail.|
