Savor the joys of glorious Saint-Paul-de-Vence on an inspired walking tour that presents the highlights of this medieval village on the French Riviera.

Depart from the pier and drive north, where in time the views of the Mediterranean will be replaced by pastoral countryside and then spectacular mountain vistas. Approaching Saint-Paul-de-Vence, you will see the village atop a spur of land between two deep valleys, where it has perched since medieval times. It’s easy to imagine the village During that period, as its 13th-century ramparts are still intact.

You will enter through the main gate and commence a guided walking tour down the winding pedestrian-only streets of Saint-Paul-de-Vence. Your route will take you past lovely churches, shaded squares and fortified towers. You may even see the French game of pétanque or lawn bowling being played beneath a plane tree. The setting has long inspired artists, especially in the 1920s when Signac, Modigliani and Bonnard painted here.

Following your guided walking tour of this marvelous walled city, you will have some free time to explore on your own. The Great Fountain Square is an excellent starting point, from which you can easily reach the grand Collegiate Church, whose construction stretched from the 14th to 18th centuries.

You might also browse the galleries, where work from many of the local artisans is displayed. There are also plenty of other shopping opportunities for merchandise that varies from French fashions to confections. Following your free time, you will rejoin your coach for the return trip to the pier in Antibes.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 75-minutes of guided, moderate to strenuous walking plus any additional walking at the guests’ discretion during free time. There are some steps, cobblestone surfaces and and uphill gradients to negotiate. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and not considered suitable for those guests with mobility concerns.
