What to expect
All your transportation needs are covered with this Paris to Avignon day trip, the round-trip high-speed journey by TGV train. In the early morning, board the train and head south from Paris through the French countryside, admiring the scenery of Burgundy and the Rhone Valley. Upon arrival in Avignon, head to the Popes’ Palace (Palais des Papes), one of Europe’s largest Gothic palaces and part of the UNESCO World Heritage site known as the ‘Historic Centre of Avignon: Papal Palace, Episcopal Ensemble and Avignon Bridge.’ Tour the palace independently, listening to recorded narration about how Avignon became the City of Popes. You then have free time in town to buy lunch (own expense) and walk through the historic center before hopping on your coach with your guide to continue your day trip through Provence.  Stop for a photo op of the Roman ruins Les Antiques at St Rémy de Provence, where Nostradamus was born, and then head to Les Baux de Provence, a medieval village perched on a rocky cliff more than 800 feet (245 meters) in the air. Take a walking tour of the village on your own, exploring its historical buildings and market stalls where you can purchase souvenirs like perfume and olive oil. Next, visit Pont du Gard, a World Heritage–listed Roman aqueduct, one of the best-preserved of its kind. Enjoy a bit of free time here to take photos and admire the postcard-perfect setting before returning to the train station in Avignon for the journey back to Gare de Lyon in Paris.

The free cancellation policy is a LIE. Do not book with Paris City Vision.
I booked a June 2020 Fontainebleau tour for my family, but cancelled in April 2020 due to Covid travel restrictions
