Historic Provence and Côte d’Azur

Once part of Roman Gaul, Provence is crammed with Roman treasures, medieval villages and dazzling modern-art relics.
The medieval hilltop village of Eze, with its dreamy coastal views



This rocky little village perched on an impossible peak is one of the greatest delights of the Riviera. The main draw is the medieval village itself, with small higgledypiggledy stone houses and winding lanes, and mesmerising views of the coast.The best panorama is from Jardin Exotique d’Èze, a cactus garden at the top of the village, where you’ll also find castle ruins (


The largest Gothic palace ever built, Avignon’s Palais des Papes was erected by Pope ClementV, who abandoned Rome in 1309. It served as the seat of papal power for seven decades, and its immense scale provides ample testament to the medieval might of the Roman Catholic church. A joint ticket (£11) also gets you access to the 1185 Pont St-Bénezet (; Place du Palais; 9am–8pm Jul, to 8.30pm Aug, shorter hours Sep–Jun; £9.50).
