Be charmed by the beauty and rich heritage of the provence region!

Your minibus will set off from Aix en Provence to Saint Rémy de Provence, where a traditional market is held every Wednesday.

You will then head to Baux de Provence. Built on a rocky spur this medieval village offers a spectacular view of the Provencal landscape. Fall under the charm of the town's quaint walkways and typical architecture.

The excursion will end with a tour of the ancient city of Arles, a unesco world Heritage Site. See numerous Roman relics including arenas, an ampitheatre, the famous Saint-Tophime church and the Forum, plus the pleasant summer gardens and the Van Gogh Foundation.

At the end of the day, you will be driven back to Aix en Provence.
