A Day in Provence
Duration: 8 hours
Tour Code: MRS-005
This tour offers a wonderful glimpse of life in Provence by visiting several classic villages. Roussillon is situated on the highest hills between the Coulon Valley and the Vaucluse plateau, and much of its architecture is beautifully colored with earthen tones from the nearby ochre quarry. In contrast, most of the buildings in the village of Gordes are constructed of white stone and rise in picturesque tiers above the Imergue valley on the edge of the Vaucluse plateau. Meandering through its labyrinth of narrow cobblestone streets is an absolute joy, as you walk along vaulted passageways, centuries-old arcades and rampart ruins.
Please note: This tour includes approximately 2 hours of walking and some climbing at Rousillion village. This tour is not considered suitable for guests who utilize a wheelchair or guests with mobility concerns. Comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
