During your stay at a French language school in Nice, you should not miss a visit to discover Eze Village
Of All the Cote d’Azur perched villages, Eze has the most impressive position. Looming over the sea at an altitude of 427m, Eze is the highest seaside village in France and makes a dramatic exclamation point along the Moyenne Corniche. The medieval walls that once encircled the village are long gone but the stony streets of the Old Town of Eze still wind precipitously uphill affording occasional glimpses of the sea far below .
At the top of the walles village is an Exotic Garden (Jardin Exotique d’Eze) with drop-dead views of the coast. Another excellent opportunity to practise your French outside the classroom situation while studying French in France.
Visitors are also drawn to the two famous perfume factories, Galimard and Fragonard. With a long presence in the region, these two establishments vie for visitors, each offering free tours of their perfume factories, explanations of perfume-making and only a little sales pressure to buy their products. Choose your visit in French to continue the benefits of your French course in France.
Other famous places: La Chevre d’Or is one of the most celebrated restaurants in the region and offers highly refined dining.
Château Eza is also well-kown for its cuisine and the splendid views from its terrace.
There is also an 18th-century baroque church and the modest 14th-century Chapelle des Penitents-Blancs.
How to go to Eze ? If you are by car, the best way to get to Eze is to take the Moyenne Corniche. By bus, lignedazur runs line 82 from Nice Gare Routière. The Eze village tourist office is at the entrance to the medieval town.
