Eze Village - The Waiter


As you walk the streets of Eze village, you'll sometimes bump into staff who work in one of the two hotels. This waiter would have just served a guest whose room is perhaps across the street or down an alleyway. As the hotels expanded in this tiny medieval hill village, they couldn't build upwards or even outwards, they had to expand by buying up other properties in the village and using them for extra accommodation.

I would think the authentic buildings would be even more attractive to visitors than a new hotel tower. I love these narrow passages.

Another lovely portrait.

Those "shells" are huge sculptures - made of marble. Amazing they are!

You must be pretty good to be able to carry food and drinks around those narrow walkways and stairs.

I hope they get nice tips. Like jim said, tricky business balancing food and drink while climbing stairs.
