Saint-Tropez is a town in the French Riviera. In the 1920s the town attracted some famous French characters, including haute couture superstar Coco Chanel. Later in 1950 it gained an international popularity: director Roger Vadim shot And God Created Woman featuring one of the sex symbols of that time — Brigitte Bardot. Since then it has been a hot destination for the rich and famous. But, these days, the town has plenty for everyone.
Expect a lot of traffic between June and September to get to the city. If you are coming from St Maxime, you might stay stuck in traffic for an hour! Luckily, the coastal road offers a view on the sea. Cruise ships that visit must anchor or loiter offshore and bring passengers to town by tender.
Entering Saint-Tropez by car is not the smartest thing to do, since the town has very narrow streets and lots of tourists walking in it. There is a large parking at the border of the town, from which it is a ten-minute walk to the center of the town. You can walk on the borders of the sea, where you have a great view at the luxury cruise ships. A ferry service from Sainte-Maxime is operating in season.
