The Eiffel tower, the Notre Dame and the Louvre are the images that leap to the mind when one hears the name of the city Paris. For eons gone by, the city has been a favourite haunt of poets and artists from the world over. Reams have been written about the city’s beauty and charm. France, the country itself is considered one of the most beautiful in the world and its capital shines as the jewel in its crown.
The capital of France is one of the top most tourist destinations in the world (it was voted the best city in the first world to visit in a poll conducted by the Luxury Travel magazine). If you are looking to visit France, Paris should definitely be the first location on your itinerary. Steeped in history and culture, the city has, for ages, directed the fashion scene of the world and set the standards for fine cuisine.
Provence is a region of France that lies in the south-east part of the country, adjacent to Italy. The area was the first Roman province outside of Italy and thus was named the ‘province’ which changed to ‘Provence’ in French.
This region has been one of the most prolific wine producing regions in France (and if a specific region is pointed out in the country that is the largest producer of wine in the world, you know it has to be something special). But even so, Provence’s claim to fame is the long line of painters who have depicted the region in their work. Provence has been the adopted home for such luminaries as Froment, Puget, Cézanne, van Gogh, Renoir, Picasso, Braque, Marquet, and my personal favourite, Monet. With such an eclectic mix of artistes, Renaissance to post modern, bearing testimony to the bewitching quality of the region, you should definitely put Provence on your holiday destinations while visiting Europe.
