Maeght Foundation Modern Art Museum in Saint Paul de Vence, France

Interesting Museum Is Part of St. Paul de Vence Shore Excursions

By

The Fondation Maeght is an amazing modern art museum located just a short walk from the medieval hilltop French village of Saint Paul de Vence. Cruise ships often include half-day shore excursions to St. Paul de Vence from Cannes, Nice, or Monte Carlo.

We explored the narrow streets and artisan shops of St. Paul and still had enough time to stroll through the museum and its lovely grounds while on a half-day shore excursion from the Crystal Symphony.

The Maeght Foundation Museum is one of Europe's finest modern art museums. Constructed in 1964, the Maeght was designed by Spanish architect Jose-Luis Sert, who worked with famous modern artists such as Miro and Chagall on his design. The Maeght Foundation Museum includes works by such artists as Bonnard, Braque, Kandinsky, and Chagall. Set high on a piney hill overlooking St. Paul de Vence, the grounds of the Maeght has many interesting sculptures, mobiles, and mosaics.
