See the best that Provence has to offer on a full-day tour that takes you from Avignon to Châteauneuf-du-Pape, visiting Roman-era ruins and tasting fine wines. Marvel at the views from Les Baux de Provence and see the ancient Pont du Gard aqueduct.
What to Expect
One of the first stops on your day of discovery is the village of Les Baux de Provence. The narrow streets and the imposing castle ruins date to the Middle Ages – a time of proud lords and troubadours. From the rocky spur you’ll enjoy exceptional scenic views.
See the Pont du Gard, a fascinating UNESCO World Heritage site that is the best-preserved part of the Nîmes aqueduct. Designed by architects and engineers during the Roman era, it is considered a technical and artistic masterpiece.
You’ll continue on to Avignon, the 14th century City of the Popes. See the medieval walls, the Pont d’Avignon that crosses the Rhone River, and the Popes’ Palace, which is the largest Gothic palace in Europe. (Note that entrance fees are not included.)
Next on your itinerary is a visit to Châteauneuf-du-Pape, surrounded by its world-famous vineyards. Wine tasting at one of the numerous cellars is included.
Please note that you’ll have free time for lunch on your own during the tour, and that the cost of lunch is not included in the tour price.
