Beautiful medieval villa, is awesome how people still live there, you can find restaurants and shops but there is not much to do other than walk around and take pictures, still is awesome to visit, you will spend maybe 1 1/2 hour

Nice to stroll around for half an hour. Nothing special, few shops. Some acceptable good restaurants. Not worth a special trip to see it but if in the area, OK for a short stop

Visit the Tourist Office at Place du Grand Jardin, 36 Rue du 8 Mai 1945 to collect a very informative brochure with a map to assist you with a self-guided walking tour of the Old Town. There is a little information provided on the brochure, as well as on information panels throughout the town. Vence Medieval town still has many of its protective remparts, walls and arched doorways. Much of it is pedestrianised, so it’s easy to walk and explore the various sites. Lovely buildings, covered passageways, plenty of fountains, interesting boutiques and so many restaurants and cafés. In Place Clemenceau, you should visit the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Nativity. It’s a beautiful building, and it has incorporated stones from religious buildings in the Gallo-Roman and Mérovingian (500-800AD) and Carolingian (800-1000AD) periods. The Baptismal mosaic by Marc Chagall is worth making a point of seeing, while upstairs are the treasures, the wooden sculpted stalls (Bellot, 15th century) and for a period the huge statues of the wooden/polychrome Stations of the Cross. Information brochures are available in French, English and German. At the main fountain of Peyra, there is a very informative panel that explains the makeup of the mineral water that flows through all of the town’s convenient water fountains. Stepping just outside the old town from the Porte du Peyra and down rue du Docteur Binet, the view from Belvedere Fernand Moutet towards the mountains to the north is wonderful. You can also see the Chapel Matisse from here. There is plenty of parking within walking distance around the medieval town, especially next to the Tourist Office.

After 3 weeks in Europe we have wandered many Old Town areas. This is by far one of the most interesting and relaxing to visit. Vence is such a nice little town in the hills!
