WHAT'S IN A NAME
However, oral legend also suggests that the Phoenicians erected a temple in Eze to honour the Goddess Isis which may have inspired the name but ultimately, where 'Eze' came from, remains something of a mystery.
Eze bord de mer was no doubt a stop on the ancient Roman salt route and it was a location that provided shelter and respite for travellers and residents as it was a site for the traditional Roman baths that were popular at the time.
The late 1800's saw the tourist boom begin on the French Riviera and Eze became a popular escape for people in Nice. The beach front, shaded by pine trees, was easily accessible by rail and carriage and was a pretty respite from a crowded Nice.
Travel was the premise of only the wealthiest people, royalty, nobles and politicians during this time.
