Eze-village [pt 2]


Here is the continuation of my relaxing and jaw-dropingly gorgeous day in Eze-Village in the French Riviera last September [here's part 1].
Eze-Village is midpoint between Nice and Monte Carlo and boasts a medieval cliffside escape from more modern cities of the Cote d'Azur. You honestly feel like you've travelled back in time as you stroll up the cobble-stoned path that twirls around the cliff until you reach the uppermost point, Jardin Exotique. From there you get a bird's eye view of the village alongside the sparkling blue of the Mediterranean. Quite a sight to behold. I will never forget it. Those photos are shared in the first Eze-Village post (see it here). The following photos are from our descent from the Jardin as we meandered into shops and painting studios, soaking in every last minute of this glorious day. 
As I mentioned in the last post, Eze-Village hosts a super-expensive restaurant, Le Chevre d'Or. A small lunch will ring you up at around $100. Heck to the NO, I said. So I settled for the above sandwich near the Jardin for a reasonable few euros. Not too shabby [it was delicious, by the way].
And a goofy one below :)

It was a day of pure beauty and I long to see it again someday!
