Description

Experience the vibrant colors and rustic charm of the medieval villages that once enticed Van Gogh. Spend half a day exploring the Roman ruins of Les Baux and seeing the delightful sights of Arles—a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Start your tour with a scenic drive through the Mediterranean landscape before arriving at your first stop, Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, where Van Gogh checked himself into a sanatorium after cutting his ear.

Continue to the fortified village of Les Baux, which sits upon a rocky outcrop crowned by a ruined castle that overlooks patches of olive groves and vineyards. Enjoy a photo stop from the panoramic point of view. Your driver will drop you at the Carrières de Lumières : a multimedia exhibition of famous paintings are displayed on the walls of the quarry accompanied by music. In 2018, the theme will be Picasso and the Spanish Masters and, from March 2019, the show will be dedicated to Van Gogh and the Starry Night.

Complete you tour with a visit to Arles, home of the famous painter Van Gogh between 1888 and 1889. Enjoy a walking tour of the charming city. Walk along tree-lined pathways and pass by rustic buildings. See the marvels of this city that inspired the Dutch post-Impressionist painter and more than 300 of his paintings and drawings—including Sunflowers. Also, visit the remnants of the Roman amphitheater as your tour guide tells you intriguing stories that bring the city's history to life.
