Should we visit St. Paul de Vence or is it just going to be more of the same?

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone, we will are leaving for France in a couple of days for two weeks. We have four days in Paris, five based in St. Remy (will be visiting Uzes, Pont de Gard, Nimes, Avignon, Arles, Les Baux, St. Remy, Gordes, and Rousillon all by car). We then have 5 days based in Nice and will be visiting that city, along with Eze, Villefranche, St. Jean Cap Ferrat, and Monaco). Travelling by public transport. We have one extra day and I thought we would visit St. Paul de Vence and Antibes.

I am reading great things about St. Paul de Vence, but it also sounds very touristy, tons of shops and galleries, etc. That all sounds nice but I am wondering if we will already have had a ton of that in the other places we will have visited. We are not big into museums or art galleries, but do like to see pretty towns/cities, do some hiking (so we have some hikes planned for Villefranche and St. Jean). We won't have a lot of money left at this point in the trip (I'm guessing!) so won't really be buying anything or eating at a restaurant. I am wondering if we should just scrap St. Paul de Vence and maybe spend the whole day in Antibes? It could be nice just to spend some time relaxing at a beach as we won't really have done much, if any of that. What are peoples' thoughts on this?

Thanks in advance!
