Take In Some History

Provence is known for some of its Roman artefacts and ruins that you can enjoy, as well as its beautiful architecture. One of the most notable is the Notre-Dame de la Garde in Marseille. The Neo-Byzantine church was built on the foundations of an ancient fort, and is a spectacular sight for all to see.

Be At One With Nature

Provence is home to some of the most beautiful natural wonders in the country, with the French Riviera being one of the most popular tourist destinations. One of the most spectacular however is the Alpilles regional country park and mountain range which is the perfect place for hiking. It is a small range of low mountains, perfect for a beginner, and a few ancient villages to explore such as Les Baux de Provence. In fact, the Alpilles were made famous through the art of Vincent van Gogh who regularly painted this landscape. If you’re interested in nature, or you enjoy nature walks, then the Alpilles are the perfect place to explore.

Head To Monaco

If you’re a restless person who wants to explore further than Provence, then it might be worth taking a road trip to Monaco. Depending on which part of Provence you’re staying in, the trip should take no more than 3 hours and here you can indulge in your luxury gambling fantasies. If you are considering taking a trip to Monaco, it might be worth learning a little more about the games that you want to play with certain guides, such as the Ladbrokes Blackjack E-Book. These will help you to ensure that you’re on top of your game when it comes to heading to Monaco. Once you’ve finished at the casinos, or you’re looking for something a little more interesting to do, then you might want to enjoy a day at the beach, visit the ornate Salle Garnier opera house, or visit the yacht-lined harbour for a true taste of elegance and luxury.

Tour The Vineyards

One of the things that France is most famous for is its wine, and although other regions in the country are more well-known, Provence offers some of the best wine, in particular rose wine, in the country. There are plenty of tours and vineyard trails that you can take part in in the country, and there are many stunning sites. There are very different winemaking regions located in Provence, trailing from Toulon to Saint-Tropez and heading through to the picturesque lavender fields and olive groves. Although rosé is most historical in Provence, it is now becoming known for some red wines, all of which you can try as you tour the vineyards.
