The village of Èze on the way up to Mont Bastide

The village is built on a rocky outcrop, its visit is worth the detour. After strolling, you can then continue the route by crossing the road bridge. We move away from the road quite quickly to reach Mont Bastide, with the best views of the village along the way. Then you can go back down to the station via Chemin Savaric which passes at the bottom of a rocky valley.
