What to expect

Discover some of the most outstanding gems of Provence and combine culture and nature in this complete full-day tour.

You'll drive from Avignon to Aix en Provence in a comfortable air-conditioned vehicle. Once in Aix, you'll stroll along Cours Mirabeau lined with 17th and 18th centuries private mansions.The elegant facades bear witness to the prestigious past of the city. The city of Aix is also proud of its local speciality «Les Calissons». You'll find out how they are made and taste some hand-made pieces.

After a stroll in the provençal market at your leisure, you'll head to Moustiers-Sainte Marie passing across the Plateau of Valensole. If you're visiting between June 10th and July 20th, the driver will stop for pictures of the lavender fields.

In Moustiers-Sainte Marie, you will find easy living and authenticity. The place is known for its ceramics with incomparable refinement and decors. You'll meet a local artisan to learn more about his savoir-faire.

You'll have free time for lunch during the day (not included).

After lunch, you'll be back on the road for an extraordinary scenic drive in the Verdon River Canyon famous for its limestone cliffs. The river's striking turquoise colour is associated with glacial sources and the minerals of rock flour suspended in the water. We will stop in the village of Sainte-Croix de Verdon where you'll be free to walk on the beach or take a bath before going back to Avignon.
