Saint Tropez: 5 things not to miss

Taking a jet from London to St Tropez provides a luxury experience in one of France‘s most exclusive cities, known for its many restaurants, beach clubs, breath-taking beaches and vibrant nightlife. Beyond luxury, however, St Tropez offers much more to do and see at least once in a lifetime.
For this reason, in order to get the most out of the experience, it is necessary to plan the whole trip in advance, starting with the booking of a private jet London to St Tropez and then focusing on the most unmissable attractions of the place. Let’s look at some of them together.

1.     Visiting the Museum of the Gendarmerie and Cinema

One of the must-see stops in Saint Topez is the Gendarmerie and Cinema Museum, opened in 2016. This building hosts a collection of photos, documents and objects (including weapons and vehicles) that tell the story of the national gendarmerie.

In addition to this, there is a part dedicated to cinema, with an exhibition of posters and costumes used during filming and screenings of films dedicated to the city. In addition, temporary exhibitions and various evening events are organised here every year.

2.     Walking along the Sentier du Littoral

Saint Tropez is a perfect town for hiking enthusiasts. One of the routes to walk is the Sentier du Littoral, an itinerary that runs from Menton to Marseille and stretches 200 km. Of course, it is only possible to walk part of it, depending on one’s experience.

Among the most beautiful areas of the trail is the one around the Massif de l’Estérel, with its wild and unspoilt nature, which can also be walked as a loop starting from Plage du Débarquement, a beach with fine white sand.

3.     Having an aperitif at the pier

A trip from London to St Tropez cannot end without a stroll along the picturesque Vieux Port pier. This area of the city is particularly popular with tourists for its old houses in pastel shades and the buzzing atmosphere due to the numerous bars with outdoor tables that attract many young people at the heure de l’apéro.
Enjoying an aperitif while observing the hectic activity of the harbour is an experience not to be missed.

4.     Souvenir shopping at Place des Lices

In the heart of Saint Tropez there’s the Place des Lices, with its imposing centuries-old plane trees where you can spend a few relaxing moments. Around the historical town square there are several shops, restaurants and bars, but there is also a market on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
The stalls sell good food, such as cold meats, sweets and freshly baked bread, as well as handicrafts. Therefore, it is the right place to buy holiday souvenirs, to take home something authentic.

5.     Having fun at Azur Park

The Azur Park, located in Gassin in the Var region, is a permanent amusement park offering a wide variety of attractions to suit people of all ages. With its 35 merry-go-rounds, the Azur Park is suitable for both children and adults looking for extreme adventures. Inside the park, there is also a restaurant where you can enjoy typical dishes in a cosy and friendly atmosphere.
