Riviera: Eze

However pretty it might be, Eze is not a real place anymore. Its picturesque positioning right above the azure sea and handily connected to Nice by a big (and also picturesque) road has meant it has become a bit of a tourist trap. It is still beautiful, but there is no real life there. Just vapid tourists taking selfies every five steps.

It is definitely worth going to visit the cactus gardens though. Wrapped around the upper part of the town to the ruined church on the summit, cacti of every description are to be found with amazing views. It's really quite unique.
