A region steeped in culture inevitably has lots of places to visit! Some are near the sea, like Fort Carré, Fort Brégançon, Fort Saint-Nicolas and other forts along the Mediterranean coast, others are inland, such as the Palace of the Popes in Avignon, the ancient monuments of Provence and the Vauban fortifications.
To fully appreciate the PACA region’s natural environment, take a ride on the Train des Pignes. You'll travel along the French Riviera, through Provence and into the mountains of the Southern Alps. You can also explore between the lavender fields and vineyards of Provence, on foot or by bike.
The canals, rivers and lakes, and of course the sea, invite you to try all sorts of water sports. Go rafting down the rapids on Alpine rivers, explore the coves by kayak, or enjoy a canyoning descent in the Loup gorges! Experience the magic of PACA!
