    Cute place with lots of fun shopping, but don't drive into town. There's nowhere to park! Took us 45min to find parking in a paid deck.

    St Tropez is really pretty and has a great historical centre. However, it's very touristy and tacky. I suggest you stay in one of the near villages to experience the French cote d'azur life i.e. La Croix-Valmer and go to ST on a day trip. The street markets of the villages near the city is actually better than the one in ST.

    A post-War World II summer refuge for French existentialists, Saint Tropez first achieved its exalted status in the 1950's due to its selection as a site for several movies. It is also an impressive city for its heritage: the Notre-Dame-de-l'Esperence Cathedral in Provencal gothic style, a castle of the 11-12th Century and the Orthodox Church Saint-Michel-Archange. Still lending the appearance of a jet set haunt, with yachts and bayside mansions galore, Saint Tropez' major activity may be celebrity monitoring from a patio cafe. Luxury yachts, fashion boutiques, terrace cafes where else but Saint Tropez? See where the beautiful people hang out on this small group day trip from Cannes and Nice. After leaving the motorway you'll take a scenic drive through the Maure Forest to arrive in the port of St. Tropez. You'll explore the town by mounting the steps to the pretty medieval village, visiting the Annonciade Museum or touring the Citadel with its naval museum. You'll also make a stop at Port Grimaud, known as "Little Venice", to admire its canals, bridges, boutiques and charming houses. From June 15 to September 15 the tour includes a short sail across the stunning bay of St. Tropez.

    The Infamous destination Saint-Tropez has desappointed me as the place for luxury, nightlife and people: it turned out as a very old provincial village, with tiny beaches, cheap tent market and unflattering poor 'celebrity' houses. That would turn out to be that we shouldn't come to Saint-Tropez, but a so-called Ramatuelle place.

    I have been all over France and this was where I wanted to go most of all.
    I did like it but it wasn't what I expected.
    It is beautiful and has a lot of charm.
    It is also crowded and extremely expensive,
    I do love it during the summer and I happened to be there on Bastille Day which was a real treat.

    I love San Tropez. It is a beautiful city with a lovely beach backdrop. I recommend renting a scooter and riding around town and to the beach...super fun! Walk around town for shopping action, and follow-up with a coffee on one of the piers. Random fact...this is where Kid Rock and Pamela Anderson tied the knot on a yacht in 2006.

Description

St Tropez, on the French Riviera, was made famous by Brigitte Bardot and is still a mecca for the jet-setting rich and famous. Its multi-colored buildings, beaches, blue waters, and picturesque port along with wildflower-bedecked trails a bit further inland make it easy to see the attraction. Impressionist painters like Matisse and Bonnard were drawn here to practice their art, and were followed in later generations by the likes of David Hockney, and the French New Wave cinema crowd. Hide behind a pair of large sunglasses, sip a glass of the local rosé wine and soak up the atmosphere of this Provencal gem. Just don’t forget your wallet.
