Overview

Get a taste of Provence on this full-day small-group tour from Aix-en-Provence and discover its picturesque hilltop villages, magnificent Roman ruins, and legendary artists. Explore historic Arles, follow in the footsteps of Van Gogh in Saint-Remy de Provence, and visit the famous Carrières de Lumières in Baux de Provence.
  • Full-day Arles, Saint-Remy de Provence, and Baux de Provence tour from Aix-en-Provence
  • Tour the UNESCO-listed Roman ruins of Arles
  • Follow in the footsteps of Van Gogh in Saint-Remy de Provence
  • Visit the hilltop village of Baux de Provence and walk through the Carrières de Lumières
  • Ideal introduction to Provence for first-time visitors or those short on time
  • Small-group tour limited to 8 people ensures a personalized experience
Meet your guide and small group of up to 8 people at the tourist information office in Aix-en-Provence in time for an 8am departure. Traveling aboard an air-conditioned minibus, set out on the around 1-hour journey to Arles, winding through the idyllic landscapes of Provence.

On arrival, follow your guide on a walking tour of the UNESCO-listed city. Learn more about Arles’ Roman past as you explore the remarkably preserved ruins of the ancient Arena and the Theater, then peek into the medieval Saint-Trophime church. Along the way, pay a visit to the Van Gogh café, immortalized in his iconic painting ‘Café Terrace at Night’, and see the hospital where the artist stayed after infamously cutting off part of his ear.

Continue in the footsteps of Van Gogh to Saint-Remy de Provence and visit the hospital of Saint Paul de Mausolee, where he stayed in 1889. Enjoy free time to stroll the historic village, browse the shops for souvenirs, and tuck into lunch (own expense) at one of the typical Provencal restaurants.

The final stop of the day is in Baux de Provence, one of the most striking of Provence’s hilltop villages and boasting incredible views over the surrounding countryside. Here, you can choose to explore the village and admire the 10th-century fortress, or walk through the Carrières de Lumières (entrance fees not included), a unique light and art show, displaying notable Renaissance artworks on the walls of a former quarry.

Back in Aix-en-Provence, your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel around 4pm.

The tour was a small tour in a mini van which seated up to 8 people. Our guide , Silvia was excellent. We were able to see at Les Baux de Provence the village as well as the exhibition, Carrieres de Lumieres. I requested to see if we could stop by an olive oil producer and she was able to arrange this. We were able to have enough time in Arles to have lunch. Since the guide was getting her art history degree this was excellent and she was able to explain more history in the villages that we toured. The only minor disappointment was St Remy: we had time to see the hospital where Van Gogh stayed, but not able to see the town of St. Remy. I would recommend this tour and this tour guide she was fantastic.

This was a 5 star trip!! Our guide was Sylvia and she did an amazing job!!!! On this tour we followed the path of Vincent Van Gogh. We went to the Asylum where he stayed for 1 year in Saint Remy, the cafe that he painted in Arles, and the hospital he stayed at in Arles. We also saw many Roman ruins in Arles and Saint Remy.We also went to Les-Baux-de-Provence and visited the Carrieres de Lumieres. This is an absolute must!!! It was an incredible light show of 15th century art work projected on the walls, ceilings and floors of an old quarry with classical musical playing. One of my favorite things that I did on this trip. We then toured the fortified castle in Les Baux. This trip was well worth the money!!!!!
