There are lovely cities and villages to explore in this region of France, but it’s the natural attractions that steal the show.
One of the most breathtaking sights around is Gorges du Verdon, a river canyon in the foothills of the Alps. It’s one of the most beautiful gorges in Europe, attracting plenty of tourists to swim in its turquoise waters.
West of Marseille, you will find the Camargue region, known for its salt flats. It’s the biggest river delta in Europe, attracting pink flamingos and wild white horses. It’s a unique place with a distinct local culture to boot.
Just east of Marseille lie the Calanques, a series of flooded canyons a bit like a Mediterranean version of the Norwegian fjords. You can explore by boat or splash around on a canyoning tour.
It wouldn’t be right to talk about the south of France without mentioning the beaches, and the island of Porquerolles has lots of them to explore. The water is shallow and the sand is white, making for a relaxing day by the sea.
While not strictly natural, the lavender fields of Provence are definitely beautiful. Of course, the plants are tended into uniform rows by farmers, but that doesn’t detract from the amazing sight.
We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
Hamburg is not only the second-largest city in Germany, but it also boasts one of the greatest ports in Europe. Though the city is chock full of incredible seafood restaurants, you’ll find there’s a little something special no matter what you’re craving.
