Full description
On this 5-hour tour from Avignon you’ll see some of the most important stone monuments in Provence that date back to the Roman period.

First on the itinerary is the Pont du Gard, one of best-preserved aqueducts of the Roman Empire. It was built by the Romans in the 1st century to supply the city of Nimes with water.

Visit Les Baux de Provence, a picturesque medieval village that sits on a rocky spur in the Alpilles Mountains, surrounded by olive groves that produce a well-known olive oil.

Admire the well-preserved Roman monument for a photo stop at the Antiques of St Remy de Provence. See sites at the northern edge of the Alpilles that inspired van Gogh’s paintings, including his iconic Starry Night.

Not too bad

The tour is a good choice. The guide and the company have rich experience in the field. The landscape in Provence is very good, of course. I think the only problem is the time. In the introduction it is said that the tour wil last 5h. However, when we go back to Avignon, it is only 18:20, and 40 minutes are lost. The guide does not give us enough time at Les Baux and Pont de Gard, and it seems that she just want to finish the tour as quickly as possible.

pleasant and very complete tour

Strengths: small group, passenger vehicle, guide knowing his subject well for exteriors, use of audio guides each in his own language and at his own pace for interiors The regret: that there is no lunch break one hour to take a real meal instead of a sandwich eaten in a hurry Note that my excursion originally chosen was canceled the day before, but I was immediately offered the replacement by another excursion upgrade
