Category Archives: Eze Village
One the second day of our cruise we docked in Monaco. My daughter had chosen to visit Eze Village, France while we were in port.. I had never heard of Eze Village and had done no research on it before we left.
Let me back up a minute in case this is the first post you have read about my European vacation. My daughter is a history major and she has wanted to go to Europe since she was a little girl so I let her choose most of the places that we would explore throughout Europe. I only had two places that I wanted to go which was Cinque Terre and the Amalfi Coast. She worked for weeks researching all of the countries we would visit and planning out what we would be able to do in the time we had in each port. All I had to do was sit back, relax, and let her lead the way. As you will be able to see from all of the photos I have been posting, she did a fantastic job. Her hope is to one day lead college kids through these countries and allow them to immerse themselves in other cultures. She is also certified to teach High School English and feels it’s important for students to be able to see the places that they spend so much time studying .
Of the 16 days we were in Europe, it only rained in Monaco. We were very lucky since we were there the first of March. It started pouring about the time we reached Eze Village. Even though I had to take pictures while my daughter held an umbrella over the camera, it was my favorite place to visit and is at the top of my list of places I would love to see again. Everyone time someone ask me what my favorite place was, I always tell them Eze Village.
If you are going to be in Monaco and would like to visit Eze, you can catch a bus and it will carry you directly there. The buses run regularly so you shouldn’t have a very long wait. I’ll try to post about bus numbers and costs and soon as I go through all of my notes.
As you can see by the photo above, it was pouring rain.
