Full description
After pick-up at your downtown Avignon accommodation, or the central meeting point, your guide will take you to the first stop. Fontaine de Vaucluse is a beautiful village located by the river Sorgue. Walk up to its renowned spring, one of the biggest in Europe.

Visit Gordes and take wonderful pictures at the belvedere before visiting this famous hilltop village made of local dry stones. On Tuesdays you will have the opportunity to explore the Provencal market. Visit the Lavender Museum (entrance included) and learn about the culture and traditional heritage of lavender.

Then it is time to head off to the next village: Roussillon. The enchantment of this Provencal village weaves its spell throughout the year, as the shades of ochre of the houses and the ground vary with the sunlight. Have a walk in the traditional market on Thursdays.

After your lunch break (at your own expense), move on to the world-renowned Saint Remy de Provence and gaze at Van Gogh's reproductions near the asylum where he stayed for one year.

Your next step is Les Baux de Provence, a typical Provencal village that used to be a medieval stronghold. Admire the paved streets and the amazing panorama.

Finally, your guide will take you to the Pont du Gard. After listening to historical comments, discover the famous Roman aqueduct and walk around to find your best photo spot.

At around 18:30 the tour will head back to your original departure point.
