 EZE: Our Exclusive Beautiful Hilltop Villages Excursion to Eze and her undiscovered “sisters”.

Upon arrival into Nice, Monte-Carlo or Villefranche sur Mer, meet your local English-speaking driver/guide on the pier at 9:00 a.m. to set out by private vehicle to the perched villages in the countryside of Nice.  Stop in Falicon and visit a small grocery store called ‘l’Epicerie.’  Typical of small village shops, often the only store in town, l’Epicerie carries everything from grapes to nuts including gas and stamps.  Meet with Pascal and Gerard Grandvaux, the shop’s owners and gain an appreciation for small town life.

Visit Tourette Levens and enjoy a stroll through this hilltop village before continuing on to Eze.  Most find it impossible not to be seduced by the charm of Eze.  It’s small, narrow roads, archways and superbly restored stone houses, shady squares and refreshing ancient fountains make this village so appealing, it is hard to believe you have not stumbled onto a move set.    As you explore this hilltop village, enjoy the opportunity to step inside the unique boutique shops and artisan galleries carved into the rocky hillside.

Enjoy lunch at your leisure (on a direct payment basis) before you are transferred back to the pier to continue on your cruise.
