Provence Day Trips from Avignon

Avignon makes the ideal base for exploring the South of France. Whether you head for lavender-laden landscapes, visit the architectural treasures of nearby towns or explore the stunning coast, Provence is your oyster.

This region contains numerous towns where antiquities rub shoulders with buildings from the Middle Ages and beyond. The amazing arena in Orange is one of Europe’s best-preserved Roman theaters, while more traces of the Empire await in Arles, once home to troubled genius Vincent van Gogh. You can explore the towns and terrain which so inspired the artist, or follow your nose to Provence’s famous lavender fields.

And if you can’t decide between these options, combine them all by joining a select group of travelers on a full day tour of inland Provence. The Roman aqueduct of Pont du Gard, the picturesque towns of Roussillon and Gordes and Tarascon’s Medieval castle are just some of the highlights. Or for a different perspective, cruise the Rhone River before exploring the fascinating walled port town of Aigues-Mortes.

And that’s just the merest taste of the Provencal coast, a magnificent stretch of sea-front where superlatives come to get a work out. See the best of the Cote d’Azur with a trip to the beautiful city of Nice, long a tourist magnet. Duck inland to the medieval town of Eze, which commands amazing views from its cliffside location, before visiting the pocket-sized principality of Monaco. For more movie-star glamour, take a trip west along the French Riviera. Cannes is the site of the annual film festival which draws whole constellations of stars, while St Tropez is another A-list destination; it's hard to believe this was a sleepy fishing village until about 50 years ago. Or try bouillabaisse in the dynamic port city of Marseille before admiring the elegant mansions and burbling fountains of Aix-en-Provence.
