History was written on the vines of the region, as viticulture, civilisations and local mythology found their bearings on the cobblestones of Marseille, the promenades of Nice and the reverence of Vaucluse. So where does one start, when Provence is the providence of more wonder, brilliance and beauty the human eye can behold in a lifetime? Get your bearings on the peak of Castle Hill, as the panoramic vista of Nice undulates in the summer air, before getting lost beneath the red-tiled roofs of Vieille Ville.
Hop a train (and bus) to the stunning natural installation of Calanque du Sugiton, where you’ll walk your calories away without a thought to actually exercising. If you’re a fan of architecture, pretty gardens or understated museums, the Palais et Parc Longschamp won’t disappoint in any season; dive into the fortified walls of the Chateau d’If, the home of Alexandre Dumas’ Count of Monte Cristo or the halls of Musee d’Archeologie Mediterraneene.
