St Paul de Vence

I went to visit St Paul de Vence on the 27th of August, I believe, because I wanted to see this tiny mountain town. I also ended up going to a modern art museum there (Foundation Maeght) which I thought overpriced. Perhaps that's just my neutral attitude towards modern art.

I'll let the pictures of St Paul de Vence speak for themselves, for the most part. I found the town to be really beautiful, a town so tiny that there pretty much is one road that you can drive on in there, and it's not that much of a drive.

I also visited La Petite Cave de Saint-Paul, a small, basement wine shop selling a lovely selection of wines (some were quite exclusive, including wine from the vineyards of the modern art museum, which I disdained to buy because of the cost). I ended up buying rosé and two wines from Languedoc.

Anyway, here are some of my pictures from St. Paul de Vence, starting with a picture of St Paul de Vence from the outside:

The cat's hiding from me! Good to know, since I have allergies to them!

A series of steps from the perimeter of the town, where the defensive wall is, to the center.

Lucy's Diner! Complete with hamburgers, french fries, and Coca Cola.
