Dating back to Roman times, Frejus was once one of the most important and prosperous ports on the Mediterranean. Some Roman buildings still exist today and are well worth visiting. The Roman Amphitheatre for example once held 10000 people who probably attended to see gladiators die. Now used for concerts and shows the amphitheatre is quite popular with visitors and although smaller than the one in Nimes, it does give you a sense of how they once lived.
Along with the amphitheatre, there are remains of a Roman aqueduct and the museum holds various finds from throughout time. It’s also worth seeing the cathedral and the medieval town square which regularly holds markets.
A visit to the Cote d’Azur isn’t complete without a trip to St Tropez. Located around 46km to the southwest of Esterel campsite, St Tropez’s history dates back to pre-Roman times and although once a sleepy fishing village, it’s popularity didn’t come into effect until the 1950’s.
A visit to this wonderful place will show you that much of the fishing village still exists today where narrow streets are boarded by quaint painted fisherman’s cottages.
Of course, St Tropez is now favoured for it’s beautiful beaches, boutiques, shops, bars, clubs and restaurant but one thing you must see if you visit St Tropez is the citadel. Constructed in the 16th Century, the citadel sits high above the town and although the climb to the top can be quite tiring during a mid summers day, believe us when we tell you it’s worthwhile doing. The views from the citadel over St Tropez and surrounding areas are awe inspiring and provide the perfect photo opportunity.
