About Avignon
The Avignon Papacy of 1309 to 1377 led to seven consecutive popes having the city of Avignon as their place of residence, populating the city with a treasure trove of historic religious buildings that still stand today as popular tourist destinations. Its city center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site populated with such landmarks as the Pont Saint-Benezet, and well-preserved city ramparts dating back to medieval times. Explore the city of the popes as well as the beautiful Provence region with our 2015 tours and activities!

Uncover Provencal Roman and Medieval Heritage as you travel back in time to the old days of Provence. Start with an olive and wine tasting in Les Baux de Provence, a stunning medieval village with several notable ruins including an old castle. After that, visit Roman site such as Nimes, an artistic city with an extensive Roman history. See a well-preserved Roman temple and the gate of Augustus. Proceed to Uzes, another town from the Middle Ages, which was once a fortress. Visit the Roman aqueduct of Pont du Gard, which brought spring water to Nimes.

Follow the footsteps of Van Gogh in Provence and travel to the places where the famous artist spent much time. See the hospital of St Paul de Mausole, where Van Gogh derived inspiration for many landscapes with olive trees. Walk around Arles, where architecture from medieval and Roman times pervades the streets, which were featured in Van Gogh's work.

Go on a Rhone Valley Wine Tasting where you'll sample some of the best wines in the region from the finest wineries. Start at Mont Ventoux, where you'll get to see a vineyard and explore it on a guided tour, seeing its cellar, fermentation room, and bottling room. Here you'll get to sample 5 wines as well as olive oil. Proceed to Rhone Valley where you will have tastings at two different vineyards, each with their own unique products for which they are famous.
