The Riviera boasts inestimable historical heritage like high perched medieval towns, Roman remains and museums with works of painters that fell for the region’s incidence of light.
The Romans were the first to be attracted by the Riviera. They settled in the area and left some great heritage. Fréjus is proud of its ancient theatre, the amphitheatre and aquaduct. The countryside of the Var is scattered with lovely medieval towns that managed to preserve their authentic and typical Provençal character through the centuries.
The Riviera, bathing in light and colours, has always attracted painters, who have been inspired by the region. During your outings, from the Musée de l'Annonciade in Saint-Tropez to the Musée Matisse in Nice, you’ll cross the work of these artists who managed to translate the fairy-like setting of the Provence.
