Saint-Paul de Vence is one of the oldest towns on the French Riviera. Expect to enjoy medieval architecture, Renaissance churches, and a handful of art galleries showcasing both modern and traditional work. What's the draw? Saint-Paul offers a taste of rural France, which contrasts nicely with the beach towns of the Cote d'Azur. The town itself sits inside a 15th-century fortification and boasts cobblestoned streets. A scene that you'd struggle to witness anywhere else on the southern coast. Saint-Paul's charm is immeasurable. When you're not visiting the Grimaldi Castle museum and soaking up its 14th-century relics or enjoying spectacular countryside views from atop the ramparts, you'll likely be soaking up Saint Paul's thriving art scene. Visitors can make the most of the town's artisan vendors and boutique stores. Garments made with traditional silks make for great gifts, and you'll leave looking like a local! Saint-Paul de Vence links nicely with the nearby towns of Cannes and Nice. From both coastal towns, the drive takes less than 30-minutes.
