  • Overview & Itinerary

    Overview

    A private tour around Avignon will give you the luxury to explore the sites of interest to you, accompanied by a knowledgeable driver/guide. You can, hence, spend longer time taking pictures and delving deeper.

    See some of the most beautiful villages of France including the Lavender Museum and the ancient Roman aqueduct. Marvel at the ingenious construction of Pont du Gard, an ancient Roman aqueduct, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    Appreciate the picturesque setting of the village of Roussillon and take back pictures of its ochre-coloured cliffs and surreal landscape. Or a trip to the famous vineyards of Vacqueyras and Gigondas is a great idea!
