Finishing on the Cote d'Azur.
Walking Level: Light,
The Cote D'Azur
Day 1: Cote d'Azur (the Blue Coast) to St. Paul de Vence
If you're finishing the Treasures of France Tour, then you're bound for the Blue Coast heading south through Provence to arrive on the Cote d'Azur around mid-day. We enjoy a variety of sights and exceptional beauty along the coast including the stunning village of St. Paul de Vence.
Loved by artists and travelers alike, this village has a colorful history. It was the Greeks who were responsible originally for setting up the Mediterranean areas of France; it was they also who brought in key components to our ideas of this region such as olive trees. Before Christ, Cannes and Marseille were used as ports but the Romans came in during the 2nd century BC and took over. They set up true cities here including all of the elements of civilized culture including churches and infrastructure like roads and defense structures.
When it came time of the Roman Empire's fall in 476AD, this resulted in some trouble for the French areas. Invasions were ongoing and an overall struggle and confusion over who was in charge became the norm. But at the same time this forced villagers to come together and put their energy into their towns and develop their own sense of culture. St. Paul was one of these and can attribute its true start to this challenge in the 9th century. Soon enough the Chateau de St. Paul was constructed and its dungeon still stands to this day. St. Paul de Vence officially became a part of France in 1482 as was the rest of Provence. Just before that in 1418 the city was declared royal by King Louis III as it played an important role in military administration.
We continue on to Monaco and Monte Carlo to our hotel, our home for the next two days on the beautiful Cote D'Azur. Upon arrival, we check in, freshen up and enjoy an Orientation Walk with the Tour Captain.
