A real imperative in Provence where the art of far niente is (almost) as celebrated as in Italy.

Mougins

Small unknown village of the Côte d'Azur, Mougins is yet a regional pearls. A must for your trips in Provence to discover cities of art and history.

With a population of just 20,000, the village - and especially its old village - are worth seeing. Here, the beauty of the landscapes rubs shoulders with the historical and artistic patrimonies of the places. Lovers of the great outdoors, make a detour to Mougins to discover the region under a different eye. Indeed, perched on a rocky peak, you will overlook Grasse, Cannes and the Lerins Islands. Unforgettable.

As for history buffs, they can take a tour of the medieval old town. Built in the Middle Ages, it is shaped like a shell. The flowery streets framed by houses with stone walls reveal treasures such as a fresco dating from the sixteenth century or the ancient walls of the fortified city and the walkway. The parish church of Saint-Jacques-le-Majeur can not be missed. And more precisely, its sacristy built in the eleventh century and the crucifix of the fifteenth century.

And because the modern history of the Cannes hinterland is strongly linked to the great artists, we will not miss a trip to the Museum of Classical Art of Mougins (MACM). Here, the great time gap is at the rendezvous, from rooms to rooms, we go from ancient art - with Roman, Greek and Egyptian antiques - to the works of great geniuses of the twentieth century (Picasso, Chagall, Cézanne, etc. .). Stunning.

A visiter seul ou avec un guide

Autre atout non-négligeable de Mougins, ses bonnes tables qui raviront les gourmets.

Le village étant réputé pour être la capitale de la gastronomie dans la région, on peut difficilement se tromper. Après une journée à flâner dans les ruelles de la cité médiévale, d’ateliers d’artistes en lieux d’histoire, vous pourrez vous attabler dans un des restaurants du vieux village. Parce que découvrir une région c’est aussi goûter les traditions culinaires.

Un réel impératif en Provence où l’art du farniente est (presque) aussi célébré qu’en Italie.

We just completed a Mediterranean cruise with six stops (Italy, Spain and France) and of all the tours we took, this was by far our favorite!! Alan was our tour guide and he did an amazing job, displaying his endless knowledge about the city in which he now calls home. I would highly recommend doing this to anyone as the scooters are...

The ride is superb. It is a relaxing ride with some really great views. You will explore Cannes from different perspectives (beaches, port, special locations, shopping areas, mountains, ...). Sammy was our guide. Sammy was very friendly and caring. He knows a lot about Cannes and he gives you the time to enjoy the special places and to take memorable pictures.

It doesn't get cooler than riding Vespa scooters in the summer on the streets of Cannes We had a cruise stop in Cannes and were tired of driving out of the ports to see other cities, so we opted for a 2 hour Vespa Cannes tour. Afterwards we had lunch and shopped the old part of the city - a perfect day.

Climbing hills on an Ebike is worth the price. Jean-Charles was very considerate. He kept looking back the whole way to make sure we were all okay.Then tailored the speed of the ride according to our fitness levels. Love the small group size.

Loved this casual tour of Cannes - our guide was awesome, not too much on history more, here and now. Would highly recommend!

Wow, in spite of being a novice electric bike rider, this was an immensely enjoyable experience of Cannes. Especially loved the tour to the upper hills where the odor of eucalyptus & breathtaking surroundings blooming with mimosas was like a mini paradise! Jean-Charles was very patient & encouragent pour mastering the “electric bike”..... still have not mastered it but would happily try again thanks to my host!
