What You Can Expect

Van Gogh in Provence Small-Group Day Trip

Discover the sites which inspired Van Gogh during your Provence tour

After choosing the start time to suit your schedule, meet your guide and hop aboard your air-conditioned minivan at your hotel in Avignon then head out of the city to begin your Van Gogh in Provence day trip. Considered by many to be among the finest painters of his generation, Van Gogh spent a number of years in Provence and it was here that he produced popular works such as Cypresses, Irises and The Starry Night.

Stop first among the olive groves and cypress trees at Les Antiques in St-Rémy de Provence, a beautiful landscape of Roman ruins painted on many occasions by Van Gogh. Admire highlights such as the triumphal arch and the funeral monument with your guide, and learn how they inspired the master during his time in the south of France. Visit the Saint-Paul Asylum (own expense), where Van Gogh painted his ‘Wheat Field’ series from May 1889 to May 1890.

Continue on to Les Baux de Provence, an ancient village nestled on a limestone outcrop high in the rolling Provençal hills. Explore the cobbled streets of its historic center and take in top attractions such as the Museum of Santons, the Hôtel des Porcelets (a beautiful 16th-century house) and the Romanesque St Vincent Church.

Next, walk in Van Gogh’s footsteps during a tour of Arles — a UNESCO World Heritage site. Learn about its rich Roman history at the ancient amphitheatre, and discover the sites which inspired this talented artist to produce famous works such as The Yellow House and The Night Café. Afterward, enjoy a little free time to explore Arles at your leisure.

When your time in Arles comes to an end, hop back aboard your minivan for the return journey to your hotel in Avignon, where your Provence day trip will come to an end.

Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

We found the town of Arles to be especially interesting because of its Roman ruins as well as the spots frequented by Van Gogh. Our guide Nicolas pointed out many highlights and was full of information. We enjoyed the colorful bright yellow cafe which was the subject of Van Gogh's painting, and also the lovely courtyard of flowers at the place he stayed to restore his health. Town square has noteworthy church and fountain.
