"I prefer to be the first in Aups than the second in Rome" said Julius Caesar. That this sentence was pronounced or not by the Roman Emperor, the fact remains that the small town of Aups is rightly renowned for its beauty and calm. At the heart of the medieval part of town, ruins still bear witness to a rich and complex history.
A walk in Aups you will discover the ancient heart with its narrow streets lined with medieval houses, squares with elegant fountains, but also a Gothic abbey church and the remains of walls still impressive.
Busy all summer by many tourists en route to the Gorges du Verdon, Aups is undeniably charming. Between its oak forests and olive groves, the town is a jewel of Provence, the bustling markets that feel like rosemary, thyme and vegetables bursting with sunshine.
Extremely popular, Aups develops while preserving its heritage. Thus Aups joined the "Villages", reflecting its desire not to sacrifice the existing anarchic urbanism.
Aups is named "Capitale de la Truffe" due to its quality crops and markets with truffle crowded by the best fans!
