As part of the old Roman Gaul, Provence is dotted with the country’s earliest vineyards, ancient structures and monuments. Towns near St-Rémy de Provence and Vaison-la-Romaine, an amphitheatre at Arles and a Roman bridge at Bonnieux, among others, are a testament to this. Numerous medieval abbeys, churches and later art deco buildings are also strewn across this sun-drenched region. Fragrant lavender fields, pine woods and olive groves of Provence stretch from the Southern Alps to the Côte d’Azur. ‘Dance, and Provençal song, and sunburnt mirth!’ as Keats had so beautifully captured the essence of the city. The port city of Marseille and the stylish seaside towns of Nice, Cannes and Saint-Tropez add to the Provençal glamor. It is not for no reason that masters like Van Gogh, Renoir, Cézanne and Picasso have been attracted by the dramatic Provençal landscapes. Savoring the region’s quintessential flavors is another magnetic attraction – visitors savor signature dishes like Bouillabaisse, Raviolis à la Daube and Ratatouille, between sips of the aniseed flavored Pastis. Bon appetite!
