A little more than an hour's drive from Monte Carlo lies one of the Côte d'Azur's absolute must-see attractions: the medieval hilltop town of St Paul de Vence. This charming walled village is brimming with art galleries, boutiques and fine restaurants, nicely nestled among crooked lanes that are perfect for strolling.

So it should come as no surprise that travel-savvy celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio and Blake Lively find its allure irresistible. Both stars were spotted last month in St Paul de Vence, according to several media outlets. (Click here to read the story in the UK's Daily Mail.)

And world traveller Ralph Grizzle, publisher of Avid Cruiser, recently explored St Paul de Vence on one of our optional full-day excursions that includes lunch at the Saint-Paul hotel. Watch this video and join him on his adventure:
