Full description
Explore some of the historic sites of Provence on a full-day minibus tour from Marseille, starting with the medieval city of Avignon. Drive along the docks between the Rhône River and historic city walls, looking at the Saint-Benezet Bridge made famous by the children's song, “Sur le Pont d'Avignon.” Go to the impressive Palais des Papes (Popes' Palace), site of the Papacy in the 14th century before their return to Rome. The largest Gothic palace in Europe, the austere Palais dominates the city (entrance tickets not included). Sample the wines of the Rhône River valley in the legendary village of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, boasting a castle ruin that overlooks the vineyards of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation. You will visit the cellar of a winery for a complimentary wine-tasting session. Next, drive to the Pont du Gard to see the remains of the Roman aqueduct that supplied water to the city of Nîmes. The tour then continues towards the Alpilles Mountains to the lofty village of Les Baux de Provence, located on a rocky spur overlooking the valley. Take an unforgettable journey back to the Middle Ages at Les Baux, before your return journey to Marseille.

This tour is worthy.We succeede to respect the schadule, and see all objectives offered.The guide Karolina was kind, meeting our requests or necessitiesand competent in explanations.Ask her please to speake not so loud in the microphone.The visit at Chateau neuf des papes was a litle bit dissapointing becouse such a famous brand offered only 3 sorts of vine to taste (the white one is nor caracteristic nor available,yhe other two were ok), but no water offered between tasting nor apple or cheese or bread as is usual on vine tastingsso under standads.

Great tour, perfect taste of Provence. Our guide was very knowledgeable and provided advice and answered questions throughout. Perfect time distribution among the sites, if only there was more time in the day! Made a great day-trip from Marseille, not too early and also returned in time to find some dinner.
