Up in the sky - Eze Village

A week at Cote dÁzur part 2:Between Aeroport Nice Cote dÁzur and the Italian border you just have to visit Eze Village. The oldest places of inhabitants on the commune of Eze go back to the neolithic era towards 2000 BC on the Mount Bastide. At the iron age, the celto-ligurians population who lived in this area erected many castellaras along the coast. These constructions were built with dry blocks of stone and were generally heighly located.From the top of the Mount Bastide it is a long way down to the sea level (567m)The "Jardin exotique" close to the top is worth the climbing.and as we sing "Der ser man Corsica i siktig veder" (in Fridtjof i Arkadien by Evert Taube)From Eze there is a short drive to Monaco with the Opera building and Casino in Monte Carlo where you may get rid of some of the money not spent at shopping in Cannes.If you find Monaco too expensive return to Nice and have lunch (or dinner) in the old cityDo not forget to take a break at Place Massena, or rest on one of the blue chairs at Promenade des Anglaisand see the sculptures of Niki de Saint Phalle at Hotel Negresco or outside the Museum of modern and contemporary Art

Casino og promendaen kjenner jeg igjen.
Bratt og spesielt terreng der nede. Og vakkert :-)

Utrolig flotte bilder igjen. Tror jeg ville beveget meg med forsiktighet mellom alle de kaktusene. Hadde ikke villa snubla der gitt. Grøss ...

Ellers må jeg bare få sagt at swf-bildet mitt ikke har vært i nærheten av Photoshop. Liker ikke sånt på himmelbilder, da det ikke gjengir himmelen slik den var. Så disse bildene vil være rooc for min del.

Ta oss med på flere reiser da. Veldig gøy å se!

Nothing like going back to school and learning about some ancestors
and enjoying the Riviera to boot! Great.

Another great chair tour for me! I love those blue chairs -- almost like benches for one! That last photo is marvelous! You can't say you weren't engrossed in art on this trip.

You said you wanted to see my waterfall and then you didn't stop by when I put it up two days ago. . .
