    weekly markets takes place every Friday morning in Carpentras. It has been in existence since 1155 and it's huge! The Eastern part of the old town and the Place de les Platanes below it are full of market stalls. You can buy everything you need here, from food to clothing to furniture and you won't stay hungry either while you shop. Reportedly there are over 350 stall holders. No wonder the market is hugely popular. Parking is a problem not only during vacation times. We recommend to either be there early, say 8:30 AM or after 11:00 AM, the market winds down at around 1:00 PM.

    Those medieval masons had unusual tastes when it came to memorable monuments. This drooling derelict is enough to dissuade you from drinking.

    Being a great fan of the Japanese kitchen, and in particular the Sushis, the arrival of Osaya-Sushi in Carpentras is very welcome....
    Our worldwide "search" for the best "japanese", during our travels, makes Osaya-Sushi, just around the corner our very Local hang-out for Sushis...

    Favorite Dish: The slightly limited menu offers a nice variety of very fresh courses, we would love to have a few more hot courses >tempuras>>teriyaki etc etc..

    Cheesy as it may sound, we sometimes enjoy going to see a movie while abroad. This not only gives us the somewhat frazzled experience of seeing a subtitle-less foreign movie while surrounded by foreigners, but it also gets us away from other tourists and makes us do something that typically only the locals do. French people love to shoosh foreigners trying to translate a movie or open their M&Ms avec cachouettes bien sur.

    Dress Code: Jeans typically are reserved for those under 20, but it's dark in a movie theater so to hell with fashion.
