Viaggia indietro nel tempo fino alla Provenza storica in questo tour di mezza giornata con partenza da Avignone. Visita il Pont du Gard patrimonio dell'umanità dell'UNESCO, un imponente acquedotto romano, e l'aspro borgo di Les Baux-de-Provence per passeggiare ed esplorare i luoghi principali come la chiesa di San Vincenzo, l’Hôtel des Porcelets e le rovine del castello medievale dei Baux. Prosegui quindi verso altri villaggi arroccati, come gli splendidi Gordes e Rousillion (questa tappa è disponibile con un supplemento).

Il tour di 6 ore inizia con il prelievo nel pomeriggio in un comodo minivan dall'hotel di Avignone. Goditi le vedute del fiume baciate dal sole mentre arrivi alla prima tappa, il Pont du Gard patrimonio dell'umanità dell'UNESCO. Considerato un'opera d'arte, questa costruzione a tre livelli è il più alto acquedotto romano. Contempla un capolavoro d'ingegneria dell'antichità perfettamente conservato e lo scorrere del fiume Gardon.

Successivamente, dirigiti a sud verso Les Baux-de-Provence, una città fortificata medievale scolpita direttamente dalla terra ricca di pietra calcarea. Girovaga tra le strette strade di pietra per vedere le numerose case originali del XVI secolo, le rovine labirintiche del castello di Les Baux e le altre attrazioni principali come il Museo dei santons e la chiesa di San Vincenzo. Da questo eccelso punto di osservazione, individua altri paesini collinari che decorano il paesaggio, come la splendida cittadina di Gordes: la tappa successiva!

Gordes, che degrada lungo la collina in onde di roccia bianca e terracotta, è un capolavoro dell'architettura di pietra. Gira per i graziosi negozietti di Gordes, dai un'occhiata al castello ricostruito della Renaissance e goditi altri ampi squarci della valle del Luberon.

Se hai acquistato il tour standard, potrai tornare all'hotel di Avignone da Gordes. Con un supplemento, potrai visitare la splendida cittadina di Roussillon per dare uno sguardo alle indimenticabili scogliere color ocra della regione, dipinte in falciate di rosso e giallo. Prendi gli ultimi souvenir prima di rientrare ad Avignone, dove il tour termina in serata.

This half day tour of select parts of Provence lacked walking tours and information. The very prompt and personable driver/guide simply drppped us off at vista points and touristy shops.

My mom and I enjoyed our afternoon exploring Provence on this tour with our knowledgeable and friendly guide. The tour was structured such that our guide would give us an introduction to each sight or village on the drive, then leave us free to explore each place on our own with clear instructions on when and where to meet up later. We visited Pont du Gard, Les Baux de Provence, and Roussillon. The tour was supposed to include a stop in Gordes as well, but since we hit a bit of traffic en route, our group collectively decided to limit Gordes to a drive-by so we could spend more time in Roussillon.

Overall, this tour was a great way to be exposed to the varied villages, history, and geography that makes up Provence. We just wish we had more time to spend in each place! For instance, a ticket for both Pont du Gard and its museum is included in this tour, but we only had 50 minutes total to spend at the site. We spent our first 30 minutes approaching and walking across the aqueduct, leaving us just 20 minutes to fly through the museum, only taking in a small portion of the exhibits. Likewise, we only had an hour in Les Baux de Provence, which was just enough time for my Mom and I to grab a snack and visit a few shops in the village. Our guide had suggested checking out the chateau at the summit of Les Baux, but the admission fee is not included in the tour, and I cannot imagine how someone could have squeezed in a visit without feeling completely rushed. Similarly, in Roussillon, we only had an hour, which was just enough time to make a pit stop at a restroom, admire the cliffs from the entrance of the ochre path, and then turn back to explore the village for about 20 minutes.

Despite the rushed pace, we got a lot out of this tour and very much enjoyed it. The sampling of sights and villages was diverse, and the scenic drives past vineyards, orchards, ruins, rivers, cliffs, and valleys were spectacular. We would definitely recommend this tour as a great albeit fast-paced introduction to Provence!

Loved, loved this tour. Our French local guide was very personable and spoke excellent English so nothing was lost on us in his very informative commentary. Highly recommend to anyone travelling into Provence.

We visited many interesting sights during this trip and our guide Jeremy was excellent. He gave us adequate time to properly view places like Pont Du Gard and Rousillon, he gave us plenty of information about the places we were visiting, and his driving was very good. Although the trip was not cheap for an afternoon one, I felt that overall it was good value for money as we saw many fascinating places in Provence that we would have found it difficult or even impossible to reach from Avignon by public transport. Only slight downside for me, as a tall person sitting in the back seat, was that the vehicle had quite a low roof for a mini-bus which my head was almost touching, and I couldnt see as much out of the windows as I would have liked. Also, although not the companys fault, an elderly American tourist who I was sitting alongside at the back somehow went missing in Rousillon, and after spending an extra hour trying to find him, we eventually had to leave without him. As a result, the last part of the tour was in poor light. Can Viator shed any light on whether this gentleman eventually turned up safe and sound?

we had a wonderful guide who fid his best to acommodate all our requests. Even drove the Grand Prix track again in order for me to film for my dad. He took a beautiful scenic drive back to Nice and we could not have asked for more. Thank you so much!! Tania ( south africa)

Wonderful tour! Our guide, Marc, was very nice and had much knowledge of the area,and he made the tour very pleasant. I loved this tour. Highly recommended. Pont du Gard was a must-see. Gordes, Rousillion, and Les Baux are great places to visit, even though it was for a very short time.

The best thing about this trip was obviously the Pont du Gard, but also the other sights were very interesting. The hotel pick up and drop off was very convenient, and I think the small group of 8 in the minivan was a good size for the trip. The driver/guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining and I highly recommend this half-day trip around Provence.

The perfect Provence tour! You visit the Pont du Gard, Les Baux, Roussillon and Gordes, all the most BEAUTIFUL places, and you actually have a reasonable amount of time in each place. Would recommend to anyone who wants to see Provence but doesn't have a car, as we covered a lot of ground!
