The town had character! All little tiny streets / sidewalks / alley ways. With a bunch of little shops and galleries. Meet a very nice couple that were artists in town. Their work was fair priced and they signed it as well with a little note on the back. Get your walking shoes on.

It's a lovely place. Quiet. Lots of interesting shops. Beautiful view of the Mediterranean Sea. Enjoyed a beer at the outside café.

This little town was like stepping back in time. Had easy parking garage and short walk up the hill to this walled in city. Started by having a cup of coffee at the little open restaurant and spent the next few hours visiting all the little shops and art displays. Was fantastic and everyone was very nice and helpful.

this is Europe to a "t" but not over run with tourists! So much history and really not that far off the beaten path if you're in the French Riviera. Well worth going to. Plenty of tourists shops and dining to be found as well.

This is a beautifully preserved medieval town at the top of a mountain in the south of France. It is on some tour bus routes but is worth seeking out on your own if you are travelling in or staying in the area. Its a fair walk up to the town and cobblestone streets when you get there so not...

A co-worker had heard about St Paul de Vence and thought it would be a great stop. On the approach it was truly beautiful and what I had hoped for. But when we got closer, I saw all the tour buses (I mean lots of buses). Then I saw the 5-level parking garage. I knew this wasn't going to be... More

We were on the Azamara Journey cruise ship and took a tour to Saint - Paul De Vence. It didn't sound that great since I wanted to go to the Garden of Eze. My husband picked this tour and I am so glad we went. What a delightful village!!! It has a strong presence of art galleries but in addition... More

We had the pleasure of exploring Saint-Paul de Vance this late autumn, and were very pleased we did indeed. The whole area has such a lovely vibe, there's lots to see, lots of little places to sit and eat or just drink coffee. There are also so many little shops and cellars of wine to explore, you could lose yourself... More

Definitely worth ticking off the bucket list but it only takes 15 mins of admiration time. The age and the engineering brilliance of this "island" almost make up for the worry of maintenance. :)
