territory of Provence contains a long coastline roughly from Marseilles
on the west to the Italian border on the east, and a mountain range in
between. Its largest and oldest city is Marseilles, with notable
historical cities such as Avignon, Arles and Aix-en-Provence nearby,
and fun-in-the-sun places like Cannes and Nice further east. In short,
mountains, beaches, remote villages, glitzy resorts, culture and
leisure—it’s all there.
