A Day in Provence
Duration: 8 hours
Tour Code: MRS-005
Leaving the harbor of Marseille, you will head by motor coach to Roussillon—reputedly one of the most beautiful villages of France. A brief comfort stop en route will allow you to catch a glimpse of the picturesque Provence village of Lourmarin. Rousillon stands on the highest hills between the Coulon Valley and the Vaucluse Plateau. It is a magical village of vibrant colors that catches your attention around every corner. Walk with your guide to discover the quarries of ochre or the village itself; then, you will have some free time to purchase lunch (at your own expense) at a local restaurant. The village of Gordes is another spectacular sight, rising in picturesque tiers on the Vaucluse Plateau. Enjoy the atmosphere of this charming Provençal village and stroll through the small paved, and sometimes stepped, alleyways with vaulted passageways and arcades of tall houses and rampart ruins. By the time you return to the ship you will do so with some marvelous images to remember.
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.
