At least one time you have to walk up there, visit the small maritime museum and enjoy incredible views. Sometimes there are wonderful concerts in the garden, so check local listings.

Nice museum with many information about Saint Tropez. Amazing view on the Gulf. Hard access because on the top of the hill but it was a good exercise!

Hello, there is a path on the Citadel feet where you can have a lovely view to St. Tropez harbour. Even if the view from the Citadel is of course worth to see.
