Not only do they have paintings and posters, but also hidden are quite a few gems and jewelry shops with handmade accessories. This treasure has also become increasingly famous among tourists, and fortunately, it’s not too far a ride from Nice. People from all over come not only for the art, but to view the beautiful fornication and high castle walls this village has been built on. The walls of the city date all the way back to the French King Francis I of the 16th century, and as you can see, are still very well preserved. Vineyards surround the village of Saint Paul, and in fairly close proximity is the water, making it a breathtaking viewpoint for sunsets. The hike may be a bit exhausting, especially on a hot day, but the town is well worth it. If you’re looking to escape the glamour and want to learn a little history while enjoying some rustic views, definitely make your way over to one of the best kept secrets on the Riviera.
