I have avoided the venerated strip because in spring nothing much is open or happening. The beaches are ho-hum,the hotels prohibitive in price. Still,its amicably strollable and the village is not frantic. We came in July,so the place seemed deserted and devoid of character. sure it would have been nice in September when water temperature is nice and there is not the Summer population of up to 10,000.
We started our amble at the harbour and wandered along the promenade reading the names on the boats. Envy is the number one pursuit here. There's heaps of couturier boutiques leading to Place des Lices,a pretty part of town with ancient plane trees, and lots of lovely buildings.
Market days are on Tuesday and Sunday and worth a visit. There is no treasures here just solid brands with price tags to match. the streets are barely wide enough for two personalities to walk,although there is a lot of " pardon moi" being used as you bump into every one. Snail pace is the go. there is no culture here bar wearing shades indoors,looking botoxed and heavy pouting lips and encouraging bosoms.
one needs a car to see Tropez as the bus service is often erratic. i liked the 16th century citadel on top of the village,hosting a maritime museum which is a great place after you have scaled up the green,wooded hill. Superb views. there were no boat tours from Nice at this time of the year but it would have been nice to rock up in a cruiser wearing my white suit. We settled for a few hours at the main beach and returned to the harbour for drinks.
