Settle in for the ferry trip from Cannes to St Tropez, a journey of about one hour 15 minutes. Enjoy the scenery along the way, and disembark in the village of St Tropez for a day's worth of independent exploration.
St Tropez has been a much-loved seaside resort since the years after World War II, and in later years its cultural importance grew thanks to an influx of artists and the nascent Yé-yé movement of the 1960s. Celebrities and wealthy vacationers soon followed, giving the town its current reputation as one of luxury and glamour. As a result, there are many sides of St Tropez to discover during your visit.
Walk through the Old Port to see the luxury yachts bobbing in the water. Browse the wide array of high-end boutiques or casual outdoor markets for unique souvenirs. Sightsee your way through the St Tropez Church (Église de St Tropez) and the 17th-century Citadelle de St Tropez, from which you get a great vantage point over the town.
Get cultured at the Musée de l’Annonciade, where the collection includes pieces by Picasso and Matisse. Explore the more peaceful area of the La Ponche fishing quarter. Take to the water with a windsurfing class. Venture back toward the harbor for a seafood lunch or to simply enjoy the Mediterranean sun on a lovely St Tropez beach.
At the end of your day in St Tropez, head back to the port for the ferry ride back to Cannes.
