About the place:
Known as the “garden of France” and the “granary of Provence,” Drôme is a great place to go for those who want to experience different cultures. The region, with borders on Switzerland and Italy, has been inhabited since before Roman times. It was also an important crossroads in medieval France, because it sits at the intersection of several major trade routes.
The Drôme is a department of France, in the region of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes. It shares its borders with six other departments. Its regional capital is Valence, where we find the main university and most of the business activity. There are three more big towns: Nyons, a regional market town, Die, the birthplace of William James, and Montelimar, whose castle dominates.
The town is a really beautiful place to visit. The landscape of this southern French province makes for an amazing sightseeing experience with its natural beauty and lush green hills. You must take the time to explore Drôme’s many castles and cathedrals as well as marvel at its ancient Roman ruins.
Most visitors come here during summertime, but you can also enjoy the perfect weather conditions in spring or fall. It doesn’t get too cold either so it’s not necessary to pack your winter jackets when visiting Drôme, France in late autumn into early spring months like February or March.
