Walking / Hiking / Biking around the Golfe de St Tropez

It is quite wonderful to walk around the old town of St Tropez, explore its narrow streets and quaint plazas. Do not miss the legendary Place des Lices (lovely square, framed with plane trees and cafés), the Italian baroque style Église de St-Tropez quintessential landmark built in 1785 and the tiny La Ponche harbour. Walk up to the 17th century citadel that dominates the hillside and enjoy the fantastic panoramic views of the bay.
