This tour is a perfect combination of Provençal lifestyle: local culture and architecture, Van Gogh's paintings, magnificent landscapes, beautiful villages ... and regional wines. In Arles, walk through the city to discover its Roman heritage, the amphitheatre & Roman theatre, and historic sites featured in some of Van Gogh's famous paintings, including La Maison Jaune, Le Cafe la Nuit, Le Jardin de l'Hôtel Dieu. On a Saturday morning, you can also enjoy the open-air market in Arles. A photo stop is planned in Les Baux de Provence to admire the village from the Val d'Enfer panoramic view. You'll then enjoy the audiovisual show dedicate to the painter Salvador Dali in the Carrières de Lumière - a multimedia exhibition of famous paintings displayed on the walls of the quarry accompanied by music (ticket included). After this unique experience, proceed to Saint-Rémy de Provence where you have the possibility to visit Van Gogh's recreated bedroom (tickets not included) or the Roman monuments at the foot of the Alpilles. Finally, enjoy a scenic drive through the vineyards of Châteuaneuf du Pape followed by a wine tasting at two different wineries in Chateauneuf du Pape. There will be some free time for lunch on your own during the day and a return to Avignon is expected around 6:30 pm.
