5 hours tour suggestion
First ANTIBES, Picasso’s town and its gorgeous peninsula, the Cape of Antibes, where movie stars stay during the Cannes film festival. Stop at the lighthouse to see the outstanding lookout on the Alps and the Riviera, then drive and stop in the old town, with its Provencal open- air market (only in the morning, closed on Monday) and its billionaire pier which welcomes the world’s largest and fanciest yachts.
Followed by SAINT PAUL DE VENCE, visit the medieval hilltop village that attracts so many artists and actors. From a bastion above the ramparts, overlooking the village cemetery (where Chagall is buried), you’ll find a superb view of the Maritime Alps and the Esterel mountains to the west of Cannes. Within the village walls are a multitude of art galleries, shops with regional crafts and charming homes on side streets with beautiful flowers abound.
And GRASSE, perfume Capital of the world with its international reputation for the greatest of “Noses” (perfumers). This 16C city offers a seductive charm, home to many of the world’s great perfume houses. Visit and shopping in a perfume factory with a free guide in your language.
