Fontaine-de-Vaucluse
The Essential
During periods of the year when the water level rises, the emerald-green Sorgue floods its banks in a maelstrom of foam and spray as it splashes over the rocks. This sight alone justifies a visit to the village where Francesco Petrarca (Petrarch) tried to forget the beautiful Laure de Noves. The village now welcomes over a million visitors a year!
