  • If you come to fountain of Vaucluse, do not stroll along the Sorgue but do not miss to visit the Museum-Library Francis Petrarch. One of the pioneers of humanism and father of the Italian language with Dante and Boccaccio. The poet, who had a passionate love for the beautiful Laure de Noves, hanitait here. Beyond a remarkable library, we can find any iconography related to Petrarch and the first books printed in his works, subsequent to his death. A remarkable cultural place. Do not miss also the lovely garden of the House along the Sorgue. We understand why the poet loved the site (in addition to his love for Laura)

  • The Museum is well cared for and offers also a temporary exhibition. Interesting sixteenth-century editions, engravings and paintings of Laura and Petrarch. A must for lovers of literature and of the great poet who in Vaucluse attempted to find some peace in otium intellectual. The audio guide is included in the modest entry price. Only minus the little merchandising.
