What's Covered? Get to Know Provence & the French Riviera :  Famed for its Lavender Route, the honey-gold hill towns of the Luberon, and vibrant cities like Aix and Marseilles, Provence was dazzlingly abstracted in geometric daubs of paint by van Gogh and C#65533;zanne. Still haunted by the genius of van Gogh, Arles remains fiercely Proven#65533;al and is famed for its folklore events. The spiky Alpilles mountains guard treasures like les Bauz-de-Provence: be bewitched by its ville morte (dead town) and luxurious l'Oustau de la Baumani#65533;re inn.

Avignon and the Vaucluse are the heart of Proven#65533;al delights. Presided over by its medieval Palais des Papes, Avignon is an ideal gateway for exploring the nearby Roman ruins of Orange. About 10 miles east of Avignon is the Sorgue Valley, where everybody goes "flea"-ing in the famous antiques market at l'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue.

For one day, join all those fashionable folk for whom caf#65533; squatting, people watching, and boutique shopping are a way of life in Aix-en-Provence (one of France's 10 richest towns). Enjoy the elegant 18th-century streets, then track the spirit of C#65533;zanne at his famous studio and nearby Mont Ste-Victoire. Head south to become a Calanques castaway before diving into Marseille, one of France's most vibrant and colorful cities.

The French Riviera can supply the visitor with everything his heart desires--and his purse can stand. Home to sophisticated resorts beloved by billionaires, remote hill villages colonized by artists, Mediterranean beaches, and magnificent views, the C#65533;te d'Azur stretches from Marseille to Menton. Thrust out like two gigantic arms, divided by the Valley of the Var at Nice, the Alpes-Maritime peaks protect the length of that favored coast from St-Tropez to the Italian frontier.

Note :  This ebook edition is adapted from Fodor's Provence & the French Riviera, 9th Edition but differs in some content.  Additionally, the ebook edition includes photographs and maps that will appear on black-and-white devices but are optimized for devices that support full-color images.
