Èze, France

Travel to Eze

Èze (French pronunciation: ​[ɛːz], Italian: Eza, Occitan: Esa) is a commune in the Alpes-Maritimes department in southeastern France, approximately 12.5 kilometres from the city of Nice.

The area surrounding Èze was first populated around 2000 BC as a commune situated near Mount Bastide. The earliest occurrence of the name "Èze" can be found in the maritime books of Antonin as a bay called the St. Laurent of Èze. A hoard of ancient Greek silver phialae dating from the 3rd century BC was found in Èze in the late nineteenth century and is now part of the British Museum's collection. The area was subsequently occupied by not only the Romans but also the Moors, who held the area for approximately 80 years until they were driven out by William of Provence in 973.
