Things to do in St. Tropez

In addition to relaxing by the sea or joining your friends on their yacht for a day of sailing, there are some other sights you should make time for in St. Tropez:

  • Place de Lices. This is the place to shop in St. Tropez. The morning market on Tuesdays and Saturdays has stalls selling all of the Mediterranean's best produce, but you can also pick up souvenirs like dried lavender and olive oil soaps as well as handcrafted leather purses.
  • Chapelle Ste. Anne. This intimate 17th-century chapel is often closed, but if the doors are open, definitely drop in and look around.
  • Vieux Porte. On a typical summer day, the picturesque port lined with town houses is filled with multi-million dollar yachts.
  • Pointe du Capon. Just outside town, the Pointe du Capon's walking trails have views of the dramatic, rugged coastline.
  • La Ponche. The old fishermen's neighborhood is a maze of tiny streets with picturesque houses in a rainbow of pastels.
  • Museum of l'Annonciade. This small museum houses an impressive collection of works by painters who were drawn to the light of the French Riviera, most notably Paul Signac.
