Grasse

Located in the backcountry of the Côte d'Azur, just a few kilometers away from Cannes, Grasse - the world capital of perfume - is located at 100 to 1,000 meters altitude. Having been chosen as a location for the novel-plot of ‘‘The Perfume’ by Patrick Süskind the city became known worldwide. Because of the many breathtaking viewpoints Grasse is also called "balcony of the Mediterranean". The breathtaking views help to free your mind and make room for a lot of creative ideas. Art lovers can visit art or perfume exhibitions throughout the year in the Provencal town. You should not miss the manifold sights of Grasse! From Notre-Dame-du-Puy Cathedral, the Museum of Provencal Art and History, beautiful huge gardens like the Jardin des Plantes, to the bell tower of the Chapel of the Oratory - and many more.
