As soon as you get into the city, you rhythm changes. Looks like everything there stopped a while ago and you gonna feel transported to another time; doesn’t matter if you are at La Colombe d’Or eating amazing food and surrounded by an incredible art gallery or if you’re in front of Café de la Place watching people playing Pétanque, a very popular game in the south of France.
Honestly, I don’t have enough words to explain the charm of Saint Paul de Vence, this is quite impossible. Every tiny street has a cute surprise: the street signs, cafes, art galleries, wine stores, food, candies and of course, an incredible architecture that will make you think that place was the inspiration for several fairy tales.
In the beginning of 20th Century, that small city started to receive many artists due to its colors and architecture. Pretty fast, became their meeting point and they left their paintings and sculptures over there. That’s why Saint Paul de Vence is one of the biggest artistic heritage in the world.
I can tell you that one day over there will be inspiring to you as well. So when in Cannes or Nice, add Saint Paul de Vence in your schedule. Your trip to Cote d’Azur will be even more special!
