There is no better place IMO than the Cote d’Azur. It’s been my favorite place in the world since I first visited when I was 9 years old. My mom lived in the South of France for three years as a teenager before moving to the United States, so my family has some sentimental ties to it which is why I’m so excited to share the best things to do in Èze, France.

Every time I visit, I try to explore a few new towns (since there are SO MANY). This time around, Èze was on my list, and I’m so lucky my mom and I were able to make a day trip out of it.

Where is Èze?

Èze Village is located between Monaco and Nice. It’s easy to see for a day or a great spot for a little overnight trip, so I came up with this quick Èze, France Travel guide so you can get the most out of your time there!

How to get to Èze, France?

My mom and I were staying in Cannes (53km away), but taking the train to Èze was so easy. The only part that isn’t as easy is getting to Èze village from the train station. You can either take a bus or walk up to the village.

Real talk, walking up takes about an hour. Luckily, my mom’s friend from high school picked us up and drove us to the village.

A day trip to Eze from Cannes

We had a long lunch at Met Vins Chic (it was okay), and then bopped around and explored the charming town.

Holy freaking MOLY this village looks like it’s straight out of a storybook! At the top of the town are two stunning luxury Eze hotels that would make for a beautiful romantic weekend in Eze, or any occasion for that matter.

We opted for the Èze day trip because we planned to spend a night in Haut de Cagnes instead.

You can honestly see Èze in a couple of hours. My mom and I even stopped in Ville-Franche for dinner on our way back to Cannes.

Check out Èze Beach

If you have a longer amount of time, you can check out the beach (Èze-sur-Mer), it’s located close to the train station. Full transparency, I was underwhelmed by the beach after living up the beach clubs in Cannes. The beach here is rocky and has no beach chairs.

You’ll probably stumble across the church in the middle of the village, which is one of the town’s landmarks and is filled with paintings and statues.
