St Tropez

St.Tropez is the famous landmark of the cote d'Azur. It is the beehive of the rich and famous, it hosts in it's port some spectacular yachts. It is unique with it' Tuesdays and Saturdays markets. It is where the most famous painters came to stay and practice their art because of a unique luminosity as the day draws to an end and the sun sets, sitting by the port in a bar sipping a cooler one can experience the emotional grandeur of this unique spot.

A visit is a must. St.Tropez at its origins a fishing village on the coast, historically was the first naval shipyard for the Italian navy in the 17th century. In it's place resides a magnificent small but fascinating museum.

There are many back streets to visit, each with enchanting cafés or shops leading you up to the Citadel. St. Tropez' fishermen defended themselves from those heights and were the only fiefdom to have its own arms, all others had to hand them to the King. The Citadel has also turned into a museum depicting the history of this quaint and yet so famous a place. Enjoy

Another landmark, marshes turned into Little Venice of the south.

It took the architect - who also designed the Brooklyn bridge in USA -, 20 years before finishing this magnificent little Venice.

Built on the water it is accessible to some private cars, but tourists visit it on foot. Restaurants galore, meandering through the streets and shopping. A cruise through the canals of little Venice is a must.

It becomes very lively at night with a different mood, youth is swigging in the bars, restaurants with their freshly caught fish fares are buzzing, and it is quite an experience.
