Vence "City of Art", is a lovely town sitting in the fresh air of the hills only a few kilometers from Nice (21 km) and Antibes (20 km). In the historic town (inside the walls) there are terrace cafés on the Place Clémenceau, with a view of the beautifully decorated church and the activity of this busy square. Outside the walls, near the Porte de Peyra, the terrace cafés beneath the plane trees facing the Place du Grand Jardin are great for sitting and watching even more activity. Vence has been a market town for centuries, and the core of the food market is along the very narrow rue du Marché inside the walls. Flowers, fish, honey, bakeries, endless variety of fresh vegetables, herbs and spices all add their colors and fragrances to the feeling of the markets. Local markets can be found on the Place Clémenceau inside the old village, or as part of the weekly foire at the Place du Grand Jardin.
Vence is also a town of artists, with painters, sculptors and writers of many nationalities living and working here. The town is full of galleries and other examples of their work, with sculptures, decorated buildings and frequent (summertime) outdoor exhibits. Famous painters who worked in Vence include Dufy, Soutine, Matisse, Chagall and Dubuffet. In 1930, D. H. Lawrence spent his last days in Vence, and was buried here; he was later dug up and taken to New Mexico. Another internationally known writer (and seer and doctor), Nostradamus had something good to say: "Garden of Vence, marvel of Provence". The famous village of saint-Paul de Vence is only 4 kilometers away.
The beaches of Antibes, Cannes and Juan les Pins are situated at about 20-30 minutes distance and the famous Gorge du Verdon, just behind Grasse, also about 30 minutes. Going west Saint-Tropez, Aix en Provence, Bandol and the Island of Bendor are about an hour and half away. Going east, Monte Carlo is about 40 minutes away. The Italian border is 45 minutes drive away. Easy driving not much more than an hour to Ventimiglia, Boghdera and San Remo. Portofino is about a 2 hour drive. Both Milan and Turin about 3 hours. Florence is about 4 hours.
If you are traveling by plane, the “Nice-Côte d’Azur International Airport (Nice-Côte d’Azur) has daily flights from/ to the United States and England. Otherwise most international flight connections are made through Paris.
