Saint Paul de Vence in Nice
Saint Paul de Vence in the French Department of maritime Alps in Provence is easily reachable by car. I suggest to take the Nice - Cagne sur Mare street and then continue on the D336 direction Vence. Once there, everything is well organized: it is possible to park in an underground parking lot and reach the village with an elevator. Saint Paul de Vence is a medieval village built on a rocky outcrop, surrounded by a wall that ends with the Donjon, a medieval tower. The village is entirely dedicated to pedestrians who are able to walk around stone houses and art galleries on a stoned path. There are many souvenir shops and terraces dedicated to outdoor cafes. Saint Paul de Vence was highly haunted by artists, painters, actors, and directors in the 1930s. La Rue Grande is a narrow main street intersected by smaller roads that takes to the Place de la Grande Fountaine, a plaza with a big central fountain and an old wash. La Rue Grande ends in a small cemetery where the painter Mark Chagall, who lived his last few years in the village, is buried.
