(4.6/5 based on 2,200+ reviews on the web)
St Paul de Vence is among the oldest medieval towns on the French Riviera, well known for its modern and contemporary art museums and galleries, such as Fondation Maeght. This spot inspired many French artists, including Marc Chagall and more recently Bernard-Henri Lévy and Arielle Dombasle. The town's olive oil mill was historically the source of much of its prosperity. Visit the Esperon Tower, the Dauphin and Royal Bastions, and the medieval town walls, all of which once protected the town.

  • As previously described, I still could not tell whether I like this place better than Eze. This place is a bit bigger with many galleries (expensive), cookies, food shops but on the day we visited it ...  more »
  • we caught the bus from nice bus station took about thirty mins, the village is steeped in charm history and beauty well worth a couple of hours to walk a round the lovely shops. 
  • If you otdyhvete in Nice, then boldly take bus 400 at AV. De Verdun. 1.5 euros, about an hour and that's your look with a beautiful valley, and on top of the town. I love small towns like St Paul de Vence, with winding streets and narrow passageways, stairways, it seems the air is saturated with history.
