PROVENCE, FRANCE Originally named Provincia Romana by the Romans in the 1st century, this historic southwestern region of France roughly spans the area between the Rhône River and Italy’s border and has long been the object of affection of many writers and painters. Cézanne, Matisse and Van Gogh are just some of the artists who were inspired by the area’s quintessentially Mediterranean landscape and vistas.
