Monte Carlo to Eze

by mheidt

We are arriving via cruise ship (not on a Sunday) and wish to catch bus to Eze village and return. If ship arrives at 10 and leaves at 6, is this enough time to use public transportation. Where do we catch bus in Monte CArlo for Eze village. What is current bus schedule to/from. Is bus 112 the quickest way to get to village, or is train to Eve sur mer and bus up to Eze village quicker?
Thank you for up to dat info

The bus 112 take you from Monaco - Moneghetti - to Eze-Village in 20 minutes. The connection is made on the middle Corniche where the village is situated. No way to do it by train as the station is on the lower corniche and there is no bus service up to the village.
After arrival ask at the tourism border for a map of Monaco and they can tell you how to reach the bus station. The desk is just on the doc from your ship.
You have more time as you need to visite the village and also the perfum factory nearby.

Thank you for your reply. I thought that taking a train to Eze sur Mer on lower corniche was possible by connecting with bus 83 on lower corniche to get to Eze village. Is this possible? Bus 112 does not seem to rn very often , so I wanted a back up plan. Also how much would taxi cost from Eze to Monte Carlo in case time is runing short to catch the ship.
What is the price of the ticket for bus 112 from Monte Carlo to Eze and do we buy the tickets on the bus or elsewhere?
Thanks again.

Here you can ask the price for a lift from Eze Village to Monaco
http://www.webstore.fr/eze/emotions/deplacement/ang/taxi.htm.
The busride is 1 Euro per pax, one way.

The bus ticket is given on the bus.
If you will take the train to Eze bor de mer, and than a bus you have to go to Nice, change the bus and take from there the 112 back to Monaco via Eze Village. It makes no sense.

Travel Tips for Éze

Go in September and avoid the crowds

by TOPSHELFPUBCRAWLER

The most amazing part of Eze is the charm of this medieval village. Sure, its a little touristy, but go in September and enjoy more of the architecture and views, and less of the crowds. Very enchanting.

Pedestrian traffic only, difficult to navigate for those requiring assistance.

"Le Chemin Nietzche"

by starship

Grasping just what comprises "Eze" is a little difficult as you will see/read references to "the village" and again as just "Eze", "haute Eze," or "Eze sur Mer." Unfortunately the information & materials available in English from the Tourist Office were neglible.

I had also seen a intriguing reference on a map to "Le Chemin Nietzche" and wondered what that was all about since our guide did not mention it that I recall. I found the information below in an edition of the "Parisvoice:"

"In addition to the ancient Eze-village and the newer town built outside its walls, there is a third Eze, this one far below and slightly to the west. Known as Eze bord de mer, it consists mainly of a small port and a cluster of private villas. Before the construction of the moyenne corniche, the middle road following the Mediterranean coast, the two levels of Eze were connected only by a steep path now called "Le Chemin Nietzche." It was named in honor of the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, who wrote the key portion of his work "Thus Spake Zarathrustra" during what he called an ascension fort rude from the train station in Eze bord de mer. Le Chemin Nietzche can still be walked today, though visitors arriving by train might prefer to take advantage of the shuttle bus service just started this year."

Another piece of the puzzle about Eze!

Beautiful Medieval City Eze

by EPoodle

You MUST to take a walk through narrow streets and enjoy a beautiful view.
Don't expect some nightlife there. But it doesn't matter, Monte Carlo is 6 km from Eze.
It is beutiful place for wandering, waking up, taking coffe and coming in the late afternoon to take a walk through narrow streets and little shops, sit in the restorant......

History

by TRimer

Eze was the site of an ancient Ligurian oppidum, probably established by the Phoenicians and later occupied by the Romans. The original oppidum was on Mont Bastide, 1 km northwest of the current perched village. The Heraklean Way (later replaced by the Via Domitia) passed by Eze; there's a pillar somewhere on the Plateau de Justice, 3 km to the west. A Roman tomb can be seen at the Chapelle des Pénitents. art of the earldom of Nice and "Provence" until 1388, Eze went under the authority of the count of Savoy. Eze suffered French invasions from 6th century to 18th century. In 1792, before the creation of the Alpes Maritimes, Eze was a part of Monaco district, and was united to France in 1860.

La Placette

by starship

The inhabitants of "Haute" Eze or the Village of Eze had moved to this higher ground for safety and to thwart invaders. Naturally they tried to fortify their position and the now ruined castle by the series of high, rock walls and arched gateways which could be closed off.

As you climb Mt. Bastide to enter the haute village, there are at least two arched gateways before entering "La Placette," a small plaza that is the town's largest open space except for that which is in front of the "eglise" or church. It is also some of the most level ground on the mountainside.

At "La Placette" you can find small cafes have arranged groupings of tables with unmbrellas where you can have a meal or just drinks and a chance to enjoy the magnificent surroundings. Just off "La Placette" you can see the ascending steps that lead to the higher pedestrian passage and walkways on the mountain. Many visitors rested here before venturing on to climb the steep steps and passageways that were just up the steps and around the corner.

Also just under the archway you will find a postbox and a little bench to rest on or write postcards!
