Eze Village (With An Unplanned Detour In Monaco)

I took the wrong train so I ended up at Monaco. Walked around a little bit, waited ages for the bus, stopped off at Eze station and then waited a loooong time again for the bus, finally arriving 2 hours later than planned.

Èze is a small medieval village not far from Nice, known for the view of the sea from its hill top. The Jardin botanique d’Èze is known for its collection of cacti, as well as its panoramic views. There are also pretty sculptures of women by a French artist, Jean-Philippe Richard. I spent a couple of hours walking through the charming narrow streets and looking inside the many shops and galleries.

Getting lost is all part of the adventure…as long as you get back on track.  🙂
