Spend a Day in Fréjus on the Less-Crowded Cote d’Azur

Contributor blog post by Laura:

Fréjus is a beautiful town in the South of France, near Saint-Raphaёl. The old town with its colored houses is very much worth a visit, as well as the Roman ruins, and walks in nature around it.

When you are driving there, you will probably pass by the impressive Roman ruins, and see the well-preserved amphitheatre. The amphitheatre can be visited and hosts some big events in summer.

Market Day is Every Day (almost)

Happy shopping!

Plan your visit on a Wednesday or Saturday, to enjoy the Marché Provençal with vendors stalls through many streets in the historic centre. It runs from 8:30h – 12:30h.

Sunday mornings there is a Marché Traditionnel at Fréjus-Plage (the beach).

Tuesday and Friday mornings head to Place de la République for the  Marché Traditionnel.

During summer months there are also night markets every night at Port-Fréjus and Fréjus-Plage.
