FRENCH REGION OF Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur

For your travel ideas: one of the most beautiful and visited regions in France

It is commonly shortened to PACA; also known as Région Sud, is one of the eighteen regions of France, the far southeastern on the mainland. Its largest city is Marseille.  The largest cities in the region are Marseille, Nice, Toulon, and Aix-en-Provence. This region is one of the most visited of France. Why?

Who is not attracted by the sun and the sea? With the mediterranean climate that this region benefits, we can easily understand why the turism is the driving force of this region.

I give you one clue to know that you are in Provence region? When you can hear the cicada of Provence. It is so fascinating to hear this noise everywhere in summer time, and if you do not know what it is the noise you can hear, ask the locals, they will tell you for sure the story of this insect present in Provence – it can be disturbing also as very noisy, especially if you are coming from another region.

I could talk about the lovely fruit and olive trees, lavender, sunflower fields, warm sea, culture that captivated me when I lived there for 5 years before coming to England. It is a fascinating region, I strongly recommend to visit if you want a taste of the mediterranean climate in France.
