The garden of Èze (also known as the exotic garden) is a jewel. If the grounds and the view over the Mediterranean don't take your breath away, check for a pulse! Going early is recommended, if only to have the garden to yourself and as few other visitors as possible. Boosts the serene vibe that the property exudes with its sublime statues, wide variety of exotic plants, ornamental pools, and million-euro view. Hike up to the garden through the picturesque old town about 30 to 60 minutes before it opens (and enjoy the sunrise in peace, while you wait), then meander back through town when you're ready and take in the shops or a bite to eat while everyone else is lining up to go to the garden. Perfect day trip by bus or car from nearby Nice!
