Enjoy a photo stop at Nostradamus’ birthplace, the UNESCO World Heritage-listed St Rémy de Provence -- better known for its Roman ruins (Les Antiques) and the surrounding olive trees that were painted several times by Van Gogh.
Then move on to Les Baux de Provence, a picturesque medieval village built on a rocky ledge more than 800 feet (245 meters) high. Your expert local guide will introduce you to the village on a comprehensive walking tour, before allowing you time at leisure to explore on your own. Discover Les Baux's historical center and its traditional village market stalls that sell shimmering palettes of traditional Provencal souvenirs, including perfumes, handcrafts and olive oil.
Your full-day tour continues to the famous Pont du Gard, a fantastically preserved Roman aqueduct and UNESCO World Heritage Site. Have free time to enjoy this amazingly tranquil place before returning to Avignon for your high-speed train ride back to Paris.

This was an excellent tour. The guide, Julian, did a great job of explaining the sites. There was plenty of time to spend at each location visited.
