Overview Supplier
Discover France's Provence region with its blue skies, charming towns, rich history, Roman ruins, and beautiful landscapes of lavender fields and vineyards. This region inspired such masters as Van Gogh and Cézanne and was home to the Romans for many years. You'll start and end this France tour of the Provence region with an overnight in Marseille, and you'll spend five nights in Avignon. From Avignon you will enjoy daily excursions to Pont du Gard, Nîmes, Uz?s, Chteauneuf-du-Pape, Orange, Arles, and Les Baux de Provence.

Set along the Rhône River, Avignon was the Holy See in the Middle Ages, and much of the fortified medieval city still remains. On your guided walking tour, stroll the cobblestone streets and tree-lined squares, see the Romanesque cathedral, and admire the Pont Saint-Bénezet, the famous bridge dating to the Middle Ages. Wander around Europe's largest gothic palace, the Popes' Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. With its fairytale turrets and thick walls, it's a symbol of the church's power in the 14th century. Another UNESCO World Heritage Site on this tour is the Pont du Gard, the stunning aqueduct built 2,000 years ago by the Romans. In Nimes, a Local Guide will bring back to life the Roman Amphitheater, built around 100 AD to seat 24,000. In Arles, the city with the most Roman remains outside of Rome, admire the café-filled squares, 9th-century cathedral, and 1st-century Roman amphitheater.

In addition to archaeological sites, Provence is also known for its wine and beautiful landscapes. Visit Chteauneuf-du-Pape, with its quaint cobblestone streets, and sample local wines at a wine cellar. Also visit the walled town of Les Baux de Provence, a medieval village classified as one of the most beautiful villages in the south of France.

All of this and more-including time in Aix-en-Provence-await you on this affordable France tour of the Provence region.
