Description

Acquaint yourself with France's Provencal region on this full-day excursion. Visit the ancient village of Les Baux-de-Provence, the Roman aqueduct Pont du Gard, and the Papal seat of 14th-century Avignon before savoring flavorful wines in Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

Your day begins in central Aix-en-Provence, where you meet your guide and board a comfortable air-conditioned minivan. Your first stop is the visually striking commune of Les Baux-de-Provence, where you seemingly journey back in time to an era of medieval lords and ladies. Wander cobblestone lanes and explore ruins before heading to your next stop, the Pont du Gard.

A certified UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Pont du Gard is an ancient Roman aqueduct that crosses the River Gardon and stands almost 164 feet (50 m) high. It consists of 3 levels, the longest measuring 902 feet (275 m), and is considered a technical and artistic masterpiece.

Continue to the city of Avignon, where 7 successive popes resided during the 14th century. Admire the Pope's Palace, which is the largest gothic palace in Europe, and the Pont d'Avignon, a famous medieval bridge on the Rhone River.

Complete your tour with a stop in the village of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, renowned for its imposing castle built for Pope John XXII in the 14th century, and for its production of superb red wines. Admire views of sprawling vineyards and enjoy winetasting in a historic wine cellar before boarding your coach and heading back to Aix-en-Provence.

Very good packed itinerary — I Would shorten the time at Pont du Gard by 20 minutes and add it to the Avignon part of the trip, however.
