This one is too beautiful small town. Not too far from Nice or Cannes. The town is few kilometers which can be covered by foot. Awesome collection of art galleries and shops. The town itself is beautifully constructed. Half day to cover fully. Can stay more.

Don't hesitate to go. This is one of my favorite places in the world! I also went to Eze, which was pleasant, but I really prefer Saint Paul and cannot wait to go back!

Beautiful place with astonishing views. We spend about half a day visiting the place. We took a bus from Nice, it was an easy 1 hour bus ride, would definitely recommend!

As part of group tour of France, my wife and I visited Saint-Paul de Vence for a few hours. We very much enjoyed our walk through the narrow streets of this medieval village on the top of a hill – starting at the Porte de Vence, through the Place du Jeu de Boules, past many upscale shops and art studios,...

This pretty and quaint little village was lovely to explore - you can do it in half a day. However, it is worth being aware that in the winter most cafes and restaurants close on Sunday and sometimes Monday too. While there are plenty of little clothes and art shops there are no food shops. We found just one shop... More

Great to see the way the villagers defended themselves. Brutal times when this place was built. You were on your own and you can see they were prepared.

One of the nicest "village perche" in the area. Lots of shop and restos. Take a walk through the cemetary and visit the grave of artist Chagall. Make sure you visit the Fragonard perfume shop. Prices are great and the items are beautifully made.
