The Departure: Èze, France

By Lotuff Leather

Positioned just in the middle of France’s southern coast, the tiny mountaintop town of Eze is unrivaled for its stunning panoramas of the Mediterranean. 

Since the 3rd century BCE, Èze has never grown beyond its area of barely three miles, but its charm extends far beyond its small size. Wander through Fragonard’s perfume factory or stop at one of the outdoor hilltop bars, then finish at the Jardin Exotique d’Èze, designed atop the vestiges of a château. 


It’d be difficult not to list the views as some of the most breathtaking a person could ever hope to experience. From this vantage point amongst the flowering cacti and elegant carvings of goddesses, it becomes dazzlingly clear why this shoreline is called the Côte d’Azur.

And what to carry up the hills of Èze? The Electric Blue Sling Backpack, its color a striking rival to the brilliant hues of the Mediterranean.
