St. Tropez, France

Here were my impressions of legendary St. Tropez as recorded in my travelogue email home.

Although lacking the charm of Portofino, St. Tropez continues to be one of the hot spot destinations on the French Riviera. It is overrun with tourists, expensive shops and snooty French attitude, but it is still quaint and picturesque in places. St. Tropez is so named because of some Romans who arrived on its shore with the head of St. Tropez onboard their ship. The locals built a church in his honor and the present day church (pictured here in the first photo) still houses this relic. The next two photos are of the many shops, cafes and restaurants lining the marina and local streets. The fourth photo is of one of the many artists who sell their work along the water's edge and the last is of me feeling right at home on the French Riviera in one of my new shirts from Sorrento.
