Editorial Reviews

Marseille is the oldest city in France, the country's largest commercial harbour and the capital of Provence, an enchanting region full of contrast. The most impressive religious building in Marseille is a fortified monastery church that dates back to the fifth century, the mighty Abbaye Saint Victor. Deep down in the rock is an Early Christian crypt and a number of stone sarcophaguses that contain the remains of various holy martyrs that date back to the Roman persecution of the Christians.Aix-En-Provence, along with its numerous lanes, is one of the most beautiful cities in France. More than forty spectacular fountains help to cool down this ancient town in the hot months of summer when both foreign and French tourists visit the city.'Sur Le Pont D'Avignon' are the words of the world famous French song that is familiar to both young and old alike. It is a song of dance on the bridge of the Pont Saint Benezet but it is more likely that the people here once danced under the bridge as that is the location of its bars!For almost two thousand years an imposing Roman amphitheatre has dominated the city of Nimes. It is the capital of the Departement Gard that is situated on the periphery of Provence. One of the most well preserved mediaeval fortifications in Europe surrounds the small town of Aigues-Mortes along the western periphery of the Camargue in the south of France. The town was established in 1240. From the city wall that is eleven metres high and six metres thick, there is a wonderful view across the rooftops of the impregnable city.With historic towns in which both the Romans and the Papacy felt at home, and with blossoming fields of lavender and ancient mountain villages, Provence is a land of sweet aromas and radiant light.

This "7 days" video is not divided by days but just moves from one town to another, presenting the highlights of each. I plan to view it again and make notes before our upcoming trip to Provence. Covers some towns familiar from other travelogues, and some I hadn't heard of yet.

The obvious age of this video tool absolutely nothing away from an extremely informative video on the cities of Provence. I would love to travel Europe in depth, but that is not possible, so I look for books and videos that show me from my living room . I got out my map of France and my notebook and found each city on the map that this very enlightening video showcases, then I wrote down the names of the cities, a short description of size, topography, points of interest, in some cases I found nothing I liked about some of the cities/areas I wrote that in my little book of France too. Someday I hope to have a complete picture in my mind of what France looks like in the different regions.

If you are looking for an overview of the Provence area, this film visits many small towns and the capital of Provence - Marseille - showing highlights such as Roman amphitheaters, bridges, churches, bodies of water, some town centers among others. The tour is good, but not great. The color seemed a tad faded - or perhaps in the heat of summer with the strong sun, the area has less vibrant colors. I would have liked fewer towns covered with more depth on each one. The scenery they featured wasn't that attractive.

I stopped at hng this a few minutes in because it felt like a documentary one views in high school: arch, dry voiceover, footage of stills, etc. With all the travel films and documentaries over the last several years, not to mention Rick Steve's series, this pales in comparison.
