Each tour is unique; within the 3-hour experience guests can expect five or six distinct moments such as: - tour of a private 17th century village home filled with painting and sculpture by local artists - an impromtpu artist talk by one of St. Paul's many local sculptors in front of his or her public artwork - visits to working artists' studios - a gallery tour and conversation with representatives of some of Europe's most respected galleries - access to interior spaces (artwork, frescoes and architecture) normally restricted from public view - invitation to an art opening Guests will visit spaces not otherwise open to the public, and will be welcomed for conversations with local arts professionals who don't typically have the time for deeper interaction with visitors.

We start the tour with a sampling of fresh local produce fom the fruit and vegetable merchant inside the medieval fountain at the entrance to the village.* We continue up the hill to a local caviste for a wine tasting, then to a superb local restaurant for a chat with the chef and visit to the kitchen as they prepare their plat du jour. We'll then head to the fromagerie for a tasting of local cheeses and charcuterie, including passionate conversation with the shop owners about France's most beloved export. Afterward we'll stop by the finest gelato shop in the village for a hands-on lesson on the proper tasting of Italian ice cream! We end our visit with a glass of champagne in the bar at the famed hotel and restaurant La Colombe d'Or.
