Provence in a Day + Wine Private or Small Group Tour from Avignon,
Aix-en-Provence or Marseille
Famous Luberon Villages
You step back in time in Gordes, a perched village in the Luberon, to some as the most beautiful of the Most Beautiful Villages of France. Roussillon, just a few kilometers away, also very typical of Provence and yet totally different with its orange, brown and yellow ochre cliffs. We will also visit Lacoste (where the Château of the Marquis de Sade can be seen on the hilltop), and Ménerbes, where Picasso came during WWII, also very unique.
We will stop at the lavender museum to learn about the history and many uses for this ancient herb, lavande de Provence.
The Papacy was located in the walled city of Avignon in the 14th century. We will see the main sites and monuments, the Palace du Papes, the famous bridge, but also wander the charming streets, secret squares and see beautiful 17th and 18th century palaces and the synagogue.
In the afternoon, we will drive up to Orange (30 minutes) to admire one of the best preserved Roman theaters and the arch of triumph built by the Romans 2000 years ago.
Châteauneuf du Pape, the famous wine village will be the last stop for the day… with tasting, of course.
St Rémy de Provence is where Van Gogh spent the last year of his life. We will see the hospital where Van Gogh lived (originally a 11th century monastery), and also the charming town of St Rémy (nice shops, lovely squares…). Les Baux de Provence, a spectacular medieval fortress built on a ship shaped cliff. If we time it right, we will be able to see the incredible light and sound show in former stone quarries.
