Tours & things to do in Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur

About Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur

Provence, located in southeast France and next to the Italian border, is a region steeped in history. As a border region, it has been passed back and forth between Italian and French hands many times through the centuries, and this cultural blend shows in every aspect of life in this sunny, mountainous territory. Its culture is a rich and heady combination of rugged rusticity and an appreciation of the finer things in life.

The city of Arles is a fine example of this. The city, which was taken by the Romans in 123 BCE, was previous a Phoenician trading center. It is home to many monumental cultural achievements: A Roman amphitheatre, medieval cloisters, the settings for many of Van Gogh's most famous paintings. As it is approached from afar, the city rises from fields of lavender – and of vineyards. For the Arlesian region – not to mention Provence as a whole – is home to one of France's most fêted wine-growing traditions. Cote du Rhone is celebrated the world over, and the area produces many different kinds of wine, from rich reds to delicate whites and rosés.

Whether it's wine, Romans, Van Gogh, or simple appreciation of culture, there is always something to discover in Provence.
