Fontaine-de-Vaucluse
The Essential
In winter and spring when the level of the water reaches the fig trees clinging to the rocky walls and the deep-emerald River Sorgue flows over the slope in a tumultuous, leaping mass, the rocks are splashed with foam and haze: this sight alone amply justifies a visit to the village where Francesco Petrarca (Petrarch) tried to forget the beautiful Laure de Noves. The village now receives over a million visitors a year!
