Provence Wine and Heritage Tour from Avignon: Les Baux de Provence, Nimes and Uzès

    What to Expect
    Set off in the morning from your Avignon hotel by comfortable coach. Watch the countryside unfold as you travel south to Les Baux de Provence – a fortified medieval village perched high in the Alpilles mountains. Take a brief stroll through narrow stone streets, admiring panoramic views of the stunning Provençal countryside, then head to a local olive mill to sample quality Appellation d'Origine Controlée (AOC) oils. As you tour the mill, learn more about the AOC standard that governs product quality and characteristics. Watch fruits being pressed and taste the rich oils made by delicately blending different olives.  

    Afterward, travel to the foothills of the Alpilles mountain range (Chaîne des Alpilles) to tour a distinguished winery. While at the estate, you’ll learn about the complex characteristics that makes up the region’s rich soil and define Les Baux wines, 85 percent of which is organic and biodynamic. After a stroll through the facilities, indulge in a sampling of several fine wines. You’ll have a short break for lunch (own expense) before the heritage portion of the tour.

    Next, travel west of Les Baux to the ancient Roman city of Nîmes, home to some of France's best-preserved ancient monuments. Pop on headphones and lose yourself in the audio narration as you view the city’s relics! See Maison Carrée, a temple honoring Emperor Augustus’ two heirs, and the formidable Roman amphitheater when the film Gladiator was famously set.

    Finish in the quaint medieval town of Uzès, France’s first duchy (residence of a duke or duchess). Stroll narrow streets through honey-colored buildings to visit the Fenestrelle Tower, Place aux Herbes (the main square) and Uzès Cathedral. Then travel to the stunning UNESCO-listed Pont du Gard aqueduct on your way back to Avignon. 

    Your 10-hour tour ends back at your hotel in the evening.
