From lavender-laden landscapes to Roman treasures and a spectacular coastline, Provence and the south of France are full of historic and natural charms. Here are a few ways to see the best of Provence from Avignon.
 
Half-Day Tours
Even on a shorter half-day tour, there are plenty of interesting sites in Provence that are within easy reach of Avignon. Go wine-tasting through the vineyards around Châteauneuf-du-Pape, discover top attractions such as the Roman ruins of Pont du Gard, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and learn of life in the Middle Ages at medieval Sénanque Abbey, with seasonal photogenic lavender fields. Alternatively, follow in the footsteps of Vincent van Gogh around the seaside town of Arles, or visit historic Oppède-le-Vieux—surrounded in the summer months by scented lavender fields.
 
Full-Day Tours
Full-day Provence tours delve deeper into rural France, allowing travelers to spend more time at sites of interest. Follow the Ochre Trail from Roussillon to Bonnieux and Ménerbes, admire terraces of stone houses perched atop a mighty cliff face in Gordes, or browse for souvenirs among the narrow streets and open-air markets of Les Baux-de-Provence. Along the way, sample Côte du Luberon wines in family-run wineries and gain insight into centuries of winemaking history.
 
Things to Know
  • Half-day tours into Provence from Avignon typically last about five hours, while full-day tours last about nine hours.
  • Tours typically include pickup and drop-off at your Avignon hotel, guide, transportation, and entrance fees where applicable.
  • The best time to see the Provence lavender fields in full bloom is from the end of June to early August. Sunflowers bloom in July.
