If visiting the South of France Saint-Paul-de-Vence is worth the trip. The Fondation Maeght has great modern art pieces and the fort is worth the walk as well. The town is so small you can cover the area in one day. And eat at the restaurant La Colombe d'Or where Picasso art works are displayed.

This is probably one of my favourite places to visit in the south of France. I have been twice now and each time it doesn't disappoint! There are lots of beautiful boutiques to look in, surrounded by amazing views and delightful little streets to explore. I always feel like I'm in a 1950's movie! There seems to be a lovely... More

Lovely little town, charming with great architecture and views. Down point is it has become a suburb of Nice, lined with tourist shops and full of coach tours etc. Such a pity.

What a pretty little town crammed full of artsy shops and galleries. One of those towns full of lanes and alleyways leading in different directions. A surprise awaits whichever way one goes. A really picturesque and interesting place to discover.

Saint Paul de Vence is a nice place with a lot of attractive street, you can lose yourself walking around, very crowd, we was in august and maybe for this reason it was very hard to find parking. My advice is to arrive early in the morning so could have the possibility to walk around and take beautiful pictures. There... More

We found this little town a perfect day trip from Nice. Quaint, saturated with store -- from artists galleries, to little souvenir shops, to fine clothing, There are old wells and squares disbursed throughout. The stores are several cuts above other similar venues, and the art work is pleasing. We got there quite easily by taking a bus from the... More

This place is a MUST visit, if you are in the French Rivera. Bus 400 from Nice will get you there in an hour and a cost of €1.50 per person. This medieval village is very very beautiful. I would rate it to be better than Eze.

Find La Chambre aux Confitures - delicious preserves and chocolate spreads. It took us 40 mins from Nice and we were very glad we made the trip. Allow 1-2 hrs for... More

This little medieval town is truly breathtaking and thus very popular with tourists. My advice is get there early. We arrived by 10am and found a parking space quite easily. When we came to leave 90 minutes later there wasn't space to be found. You have been warned! Parking was 2 euros for 1hr 40 which was plenty of time.... More
