What You Can Expect
In Orange you'll tour the famous Arch of Triumph, symbol of Roman glory, and visit the best preserved Roman theater in existence.
You'll then take a wine tour through the vineyards between Orange and Chateauneuf-du-Pape, and stop for panoramic views of the Rhone River valley from the castle of Chateauneuf-du-Pape.
Finally, you'll enjoy a wine tasting in a cellar in Chateauneuf-du-Pape and shop for souvenirs, wines and Provencal specialties in a traditional shop.
The Roman arch and ancient theater in Orange are wonderfully preserved and important to see. The theater has a very good audio guide that comes with the tour. We enjoyed the tastings at the working winery and also the visit to ruins of the Pope's old chateau. Our guide Julian was excellent, fun, helpful.
It was good, and the tour guide quite helpful. I really would have preferred to have a wine tasting at several wineries in Chateauneuf du Pape, but that was not an option.
