Well worth the trip if staying on the coast. I simply love it, from the unique shops to the beautiful & authentic medieval section to its location between hills where a gentle day's walk is appreciated for the exercise & atmosphere. Vence called us back a second time when we stayed on the seafront, luring us to come again for a day of history. Perhaps it was our advantage and perhaps (some may say) the wrong time to visit but we went on a Monday the second time and most of the shops were closed. If you want a quiet time for the day, go on Monday. Otherwise, the village is a beautiful blending of school children, foreign visitors and special events (such as the television filming that was being done on our first visit). I told my partner that if I considered going to this part of France again, I would certainly look at Vence for accommodation...a special place this is and one that gets into your mind & won't let go.
