Highlights
  • Learn about the important role of Avignon in the world of Christianity
  • Discover beautiful French alpine villages
  • Explore the stunning Senanque Abbey and the surrounding Lavender fields
Full description
Discover the 14th century seat of the papacy, as you spend some time walking around Avignon. Wander the Palais des Papes, an austere-looking fortress that dominates the city. See for yourself outstanding examples of Gothic architecture in the Petit Palais and the Romanesque Cathedral of Notre-Dame-des-Doms. These complete an exceptional group of monuments that testify to the leading role played by Avignon in 14th-century Christian Europe. 

Heading to the small village of Les Baux de Provence in the Alpilles mountain range, see some of the most dramatic scenery in the region. Located on a rocky outcrop, Les Baux de Provence provides a spectacular view of the surrounding valley.

Take time at the Senanque Abbey in the middle of the fields of lavender and enjoy visiting the lavender museum in Coustellet where you can learn everything about this relaxing plant.
