Imagine an adorable village along the Corniche Highway on the French Riviera which seems to spill down a steep cliff to the sea below. You have pictured the enchanting town of Eze France. Bring good walking shoes here because the main street of Eze village climbs precipitously up the hillside. It is one of our favorite small towns in Europe. Be sure to include Eze in your Southern France itinerary for at least the following reasons:
1. The narrow main street is lined with shops and restaurants as visitors climb up the vertical village.
2. At the tip-top of the town is a lovely cactus garden, just perfect for a cactophile like me.
3. Eze is an unforgettable place for its uniqueness and its incredible views of the Mediterranean Sea.
