If you come to Provence, you must come to Fréjus for its plentiful and sandy beaches as well as its port which is an upmarket base for fun during summer! With 2000 years of history, this pretty medieval city and popular seaside resort on the French Riviera managed to preserve its colorful old houses and prestigious heritage among the jumble of modernity. First, go to the city center which is the result of a mixture of rich and varied cultures. You can see there a magnificent cathedral, authentic fountains, and small colorful houses which make the real and natural charm of Fréjus. Uncover the ancient history by visiting the ruins of the Roman aqueducts and amphitheater. You can also visit the oldest Christian buildings in France within the outstanding “Cité Épiscopale” which contains the medieval cathedral and cloister. Definitely a must-see! Want to have fun? Go straight to Fréjus harbor where you can find many bars, restaurants, pretty little shops with pastel-colored façades to relax and enjoy time with your friends, family, or lover. Located halfway between Cannes and St-Tropez, do not forget to take a sun-bath, and enjoy the sea on its beautiful beaches. Plus, the Massif Esterel surrounding Fréjus and its wonderful coast road lead you into sublime landscapes worth of twenty centuries of beauty.
