Saint-Tropez in France has attracted the rich and famous since the late 19th century. Today, the pretty peninsula is renowned for exclusive beach clubs, megabucks yachts and exquisite restaurants as well as olive groves, a cobblestoned old town and rugged coastal hikes. Not enough? Here’s why everyone should visit Saint-Tropez at least once.
Try to visit St Tropez on a Tuesday or Saturday morning to visit the lively open-air market at Place des Lices. Stock up for the picnic of dreams at local food stalls including those piled high with freshly baked bread, pastries, ripe fruit, juicy olives and sausages. After, browse for bargain fashion and well-priced souvenirs to take home from vendors selling unique handicrafts, paintings, antiques, bags and home accessories.
