Shhhhhhhhhh!

Fréjus is a hidden gem undiscovered by many non-Europeans. Situated quite conveniently between Cannes and St. Tropez, it's often overlooked because of the more glamourous cities along the Riviera. Better for us; we're thinking about moving there! Though, by no means, is it uncrowded during vacation months. If you're the type of person who wants a reprieve from the sweaty, suntanned multitudes squished side-by-side along the cramped beaches of glitzy towns, a nice hike in the Fréjus area valley or mountains, or an exploration of the ancient roman ruins or a relaxing stroll through the old town, will be refreshing alternatives.

    Bonjour Lulu et Bonne Anniversaire de Finlandia! Frejus looks like my kind of a place and I am glad that tourists have not found it yet. One day I will be there. Great tips, sad history and beautiful photos. Cheers, Sini

    Lovely little town you describe with a very sad history. The hiking sounds great.

    Great page - wish I'd had time to explore the ancient part of the city, but the chapel was in a completely different part of the city. Next trip for sure.

    What a shame I didn't go further around the Riviera. That was an amazing crumbling of that dam. A lot of history in this town. The sheep remind me of NZ:-) Thanks for the tour.
