Dating from the Middle Ages, the village was built on top of the rocky outcrop for security reasons.

The excursion was as described via the viewpoint to Eze and then Monaco with changing of the guard. After Eze was the tour of the perfume factory, which ended in an unassuming sales event. If you have mobility problems, you should at least save Eze. It's steep uphill and downhill everywhere.

Our tour guide Samir was very helpful and informative. He did an amazing job on identifying the landmarks and giving lots of great information. Thank you for the great service Samir!!
