High up in the clouds along the French Riviera lies the medieval village of Eze. This was our third stop on our day excursion from Villefranche and the one I was looking forward to the most. When you arrive in Eze, there is a parking area, and then you walk straight up to the medieval area where you will find spectacular views, a beautiful church, gardens, and several shops set among the old stone buildings. The "streets" are really pathways, barely wide enough for a person to pass, but well worth the trek.

Before going up to the medieval area, you will find a small hotel, a perfume factory, several gift shops, the local post office, and the tourism office. The tourism office offers free wifi and there are a few benches outside where you can get a good connection. I was able to use some of my free voice minutes on an iPod app to call my family while we were waiting for our free time to be over. Had I realized there was the Internet access earlier in our visit, I would have parked the teenagers on a bench so they could download the latest episode of their favorite podcasts.
