“Great historical town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

With a modern touch. Seeing the old world style of housing, streets, and walls was fun and educational. Seemed like lots of shops and place to see, we were there for about an hour and wish we had 1, or even 2 more.

Make sure to stop by the tourism office and get a map, the streets are windy.

“A new favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

We absolutely loved Saint-Paul de Vence! I had been to several old, walled cities in my European travels, but this is just the sweetest, most quaint and chic little village with lots of shops, restaurants and charm. It's artisit Marc Chagall's final resting place. I highly recommend a visit. Just meander the streets and get lost.
