Fréjus, a dormant town lying a short distance from the beaches of the Mediterranean, hides an important long history. Originally named Forum Julii, the city was founded by Julius Caeser himself in the year 49 BC. Its relative importance is demonstrated by two Roman theatres and an aqueduct, all of which are visible to this day, and along with the cathedral and two museums, they constitute the major attractions. Perhaps though, the town's greatest feature is its isolation from mass tourism even in mid-summer, a rarity on the Côte d'Azur! Fréjus is a pleasant place to spend a morning or an afternoon on the way to Saint-Tropez or to the beaches of Saint Raphaël, or an entire holiday if you prefer to be away from tourists.

    I do feel ashamed! I thought I had an idea of what Fréjus is like, but seeing your page I am far from knowing the truth!!! - And yes, why don't you plan to come to Karlsruhe next year???
