Grasse & St. Paul De Vence

Leaving Cannes, you'll turn inland to Grasse, birthplace of the French perfume industry. Here you’ll visit a perfume factory for a tour and learn how flowers are boiled and the essence condensed in one of the world’s oldest distillation processes. Your coach then crosses the Loup River canyon before entering Saint Paul de Vence, the meeting place of artists and stars. Your exploration of this 16th century walled village begins as you enter the village by the main gate.


Discover that this village, typical of other fortified villages guarding the frontier, has retained much of its medieval appearance, its ramparts remaining remarkably intact to this day. Here you’ll have an opportunity to stroll through the narrow, cobblestone lanes exploring the many wonderful boutiques and art galleries before returning to your ship.


Note: Tour constitutes 1 1/2 miles of walking on cobblestone and uphill terrain in St. Paul. There is an approximate 500 meter walk from the bus park to the village.
