About the sights in Saint Tropez
There are a wealth of places to visit in Saint-Tropez, from top class art museums to the remains of ancient chapels and of course the famous vineyards. Many of the highlights are in Saint-Tropez itself, but to see the best of the region, a car, bike or moped is recommended.
Thanks to the varied history of Saint-Tropez, you will find reminders of pre-historic times, invasions and political wrangling. Much of this history is maritime based and is documented in a number of local museums. Saint-Tropez is home to a vibrant arts scene as evidenced by the number of excellent art galleries and museums found throughout. Historical art collections as well as contemporary can be seen across the region, and not forgetting of course those artists who were resident in the area such as Picasso, Signac, Matisse and Renoir.
But it is not just man-made artefacts that are worth seeking out. Saint-Tropez is blessed with fabulous scenery, from the coastline of the French Riviera to the rolling hills inland. A number of Natural Parks have been created, protecting the land from development and allowing visitors to explore the natural landscape by foot or by bike.
