city of Avignon, set on the banks of the Rhone
with dramatic views of its 800 year old medieval

Papes. The famous Pont d’Avignon of nursery
rhyme fame sits majestically half way across the
Rhone and the city teems with cobbled streets,
quaint boutiques and leafy squares.

amazing feat of engineering built over 2,000
years ago to take water to the city of Nimes. We
include a visit to the museum and visitor centre,
which provides an interactive insight into how the
aqueduct was made and the people who
designed, worked and lived there over the course
of its history. Afterwards we continue to the city
of Nimes, where you can enjoy the many shops,
cafes and boutiques that line the streets

We venture into the heart of Provence
today and the village of Les Baux de Provence.
Perched atop a rocky outcrop and named as one
of the “Most Beautiful Villages in France”, enjoy
time wandering the tiny streets and visiting the
Castle ruins. We continue to the beautiful village
of St Remy de Provence, with its 14th Century
walls. It was here that Van Gogh lived and
painted ‘Starry Night’. Step back in time through
the boulevards and narrow streets and perhaps
enjoy lunch at one of the many cafés and
restaurants. Art lovers will enjoy a visit to the
amazing Carrieres de Lumieres where cavernous
stone rooms bring art form to life from floor to
ceiling with projections from classical and modern
artists. (Entry extra).

final overnight with bed and breakfast.
