Grasse, the perfume capital of the world, born in the 11th-century and now recognized as a French City of Art and History, is a veritable balcony overlooking the Mediterranean with a unique blend of Genoan and Provençal architecture. The moment you enter the old town, you will be fascinated and wonderstruck by the soul of Grasse: The Cathedral, with the adjacent Episcopal Palace, rises above the rooftops; the façades and 18th-century mansions whisper of Grasse’s golden age, a time when perfume and its industries flourished. Learn still more on a tour, alone or led by a qualified guide, to see the city in a whole new light! Grasse has many public and private museums clustered in the historic center, including the International Perfume Museum, the Museum of Provençal Art and History, the Jean-Honoré Fragonard Museum, the Provencal Costume and Jewelry Museum, and the Villa Musée Jean-Honoré Fragonard.
