Here is the most detailed and informative guide to this fascinating region, from the Côte d’Azur and its seaside towns of St. Tropez, Cannes, Nice and Antibes, to the mountainous regions of Vaucluse, the Lubéron and Mont Ventoux. See the papal palaces and cathedrals massed inside Avignon’s intact 14th-century walls. Or visit Nîmes, with its Amphitheater, built by the Romans, still the venue for festivals and spectacles. Experience the Camargue, paradise for birdwatchers – the only place outside of Africa where pink flamingos nest by the tens of thousands. The wild Camargue horses here are legendary. A few of the many attractions this guide explores: The places to stay and eat, including centuries-old castles, plush resorts, apartments and cottages to rent. The best shopping – from truffle and flower markets to antique fairs, food markets, clothing stores and chocolate shops. The celebrations – the Gypsy Pilgrimage at Les Saintes Maries de la Mer, countless festivals of wine, dance, theater, opera, even kite-flying. The grotto and ancient forest at Ste Baume, said to have sheltered Mary Magdalen in the last years of her life – after she escaped from the Holy Land in 40 AD. Arles, where Van Gogh lived and worked. The author shows you how to hike hidden trails where only locals walk, following in Van Gogh’s footsteps.
