We had a 2 hours stroll around St Paul de Vence. Pretty village, idyllic hilltop setting. Lots of galleries and tourist shops. Nice views from view points and through alleys. Come early, we were there at 09.30 (most things open at 10.00) and we stayed for 2 hours. At the end "hords" of people came from buses and cars.

From Nice take the bus to this fabuous town. Cost you 1.5 euro each way, and the trip is only 60 minutes. Sure a taxi will take 15 minutes off the trip but cost you 75 euro each way. Save the money and spend it on the traapings that St paul has to offer. From local artists to fashion and... More

Saint-Paul de Vence is a perfect Medieval hilltop village - surrounded by ramparts it towers the beautiful landscape when approaching the village. Even though its narrow pebbled streets are filled with tourists in the summer season, the village is definitely worth a visit. And from the old towers you get a wonderful view of the landscape beyond. Saint-Paul is also... More

Was recommended by friends and it certainly lived up to our expectations. Beautiful old town with lots to see and beautiful old buildings. The views are spectacular and the bus ride there also takes in the beautiful scenery. Worth a visit and easy to get the bus from Nice

Our visit to this village was on a scorching summer's day...but it was still a well worth a visit and the occasional fountain kept us cool...it reminded us of Èze but bigger; very quaint little boutiques and galleries with original artworks for sale. There are quite a few little restaurants in quiet nooks as well as larger eateries. A delightful... More

St. Paul de Vence is awesome, you can see all the artworks of many artists, so unique and creative. My friend and I just enjoyed the place taking photos and got the chance to eat crepres. Its nice to walk around and reminisce the past. Nice place.

If you travel to Cote D'Azure, this small town is one of the places that you have to visit. Different to the big cities, this is an artisan village.

During the off season I would rate this beautiful town a 5 stars but visiting in July it was swarmed with people - we visited Tourrettes Sur Loup which was just as lovely but very quiet.
