Quick Tram Ride Just take a 10-minute tramway ride (direction Pont St Michel) to the Vauban tram stop; the tram runs every 3-5 minutes and your 1.50 euro ticket is good for the Eze bus as well.
Take the Eze Bus From the tram stop, turn around and walk through the parking lot to the bus station, and look for either Bus #112 Beausoleil or Bus #82 Plateau de la Justice, which alternate to leave about once an hour from Monday-Saturday (on Sundays and French holidays only the #82 runs, and on a very limited schedule). The bus ride to the spectacular village of Eze will take half-an-hour. Push the red “stop requested” button when you see the perched village getting close.
- Tip: Wear walking shoes as the 1000-year-old cobble stones are sometimes steep and worn slick.
Don’t be misled into taking the Bus #100 from the main Nice bus hub: this bus goes to Eze-sur-mer… which is at the beach! … If you take this bus and get off here, you will have to walk up a steep mountain to get the the perched village!
Getting back: You can catch either Bus #112 and Bus #82 which between them leaves aproximately once each hour for the 30-minute drive back down to Nice. Pop into the Eze tourist office for printed bus schedules to make it easy.
From Eze you can also pop down to Monaco, just continue on Bus #112 in the same direction that you arrived (leaving Eze at 11am, 12:50pm, 2:30, 4:30 and 6:30). From there you can catch the Bus #100 back to Nice, which leaves every 15 minutes until 8pm.
