Wine, the speciality of each French town
Who knows better then the French to make a deliscious wine. Frejus has a few winehouses and one deserves special attention as it is in warm connection with the ancient past of the town. "Les Celliers des Romains" (the Roman cellars) is practically a neighbor of the Arena and has a wide variation of wines and liquors. During most working days (except roughly from 12:00 to 14:00 hours) one can buy at the "factory" or first taste a selection of there fine wines. Variating from white, rose to red, as well as with many tasty melanges.
Dazzling architecture on ... cemetries
The French honour their parted family members with amazing grave monuments and architecture. A view over the average cemetry in a town will leave you speechless, as whole houses are built to remind the once that have past away into another world.
Remembering the world-wars and honouring the death
Especially the first world-war (the Great War as the French call it still) made enormous amounts of victims that fanatically went to the horrifying front where heroism and bravery were killed together with millions of young souls. Every city, town and village has lost citizens. Every city, town and village remembers them with large monuments in which the names of the fallen sons of the population are mentioned, as well as in which war they fell.
Ever present refreshing water
One of the things that I was very happy about in the sunny and hot days in the towns and villages along the Cote d' Azur, was the fact that everywhere in town were fountains and sources. Once and a while one could refresh at a nice pump, fountain or tap-point and wash the sweat of your face. Frejus was not an exception, but here the fountains definately deserved some extra attention.
