See the Roman monuments of Provence on a tour that includes visits to the Pont du Gard and the mausoleum and communal arch near St. Remy de Provence. Explore the medieval fortified village of St. Baux de Provence, and enjoy views from the citadel.
What to Expect
Marvel at the famous Pont du Gard, dating back to the 1st century A.D. and listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. It is the most well preserved part of the Roman aqueduct that was built to supply Nimes with water.
On this 5-hour tour from Arles you’ll also stop to see the Roman monuments near St. Remy de Provence. The communal arch and the mausoleum were built in the 1st century. Nearby you can admire works by van Gogh, painted by the artist during his stay at the mental hospital of St. Paul de Mausole.
The picturesque medieval village of Les Baux de Provence is perched hill on a rocky outcropping, and is surrounded by thousands of olive trees which produce a well-known olive oil.
The historic hilltop citadel has been abandoned since the 17th century, giving Les Baux a surreal feeling. The shops, restaurants, and hotels are located in the small village below.
