Itinerary

You will visit the following sites: • Pont du Gard: The Pont du Gard is a beautiful 2000 year-old Roman aqueduct that until recently supplied over 40 million gallons of water daily to the city of Nimes. Surprisingly, this gigantic stone structure has no mortar – the stones are made to fit together in a rather seamless fashion and using the arches the weight supports itself. The monument is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. On your way to Alpilles, you will come across lock of Vallabrègues on the Rhône river and Tarascon with its 15th century medieval castle of Roi Rene. • Baux de Provence: It is a beautiful village set upon a rock at a height of 245 metres. Tour around its historical centre and visit the museum of santons, Hôtel des Porcelets, beautiful 16th century houses, St Vincent Church and other attractions. • Antiques of Saint Remy de Provence: It is a pretty village, and the old Gallo-Roman interior is circled by the remnants of a circular 14th century wall. St. Remy is located on the plains at the northern edge of the Alpilles, about 20 kilometres south of Avignon, this is where Van Gogh painted ‘Starry Night’. After exploring St. Remy, you have free time for lunch (cost not included). Your tour ends at the starting point.
