Sightseeing route in Vence

Vence

【City description】

When you continue to take a bus after St. Paul de Vence, you’ll arrive at this town at final. The center area is surrounded by walls and it looks like that the medieval epoch is kept in the wall. As it is not the town for the tourism, it is better to visit after St. Paul de Vence if you have a time. But there is a painting of Marc Chagall in the cathedral.
