Highlights
  • See the stunning salt marshes of the Camargue by train
  • Visit the Roman amphitheater in Arles
  • Explore the medieval city of Aigues-Mortes
Full description
Get back to nature in the Camargue and marvel at the local flora and fauna. Drive to the medieval city of Aigues-Mortes to admire one of the best examples of 13th-century military architecture with its crenelated wall of towers and fortified gates.

Learn more about how salt was harvested from the salt marshes that stretch over 10,000 hectares from the city gates on a 1-hour train ride. Cross the Rhône River on the Bac du Sauvage cable ferry and visit the village of Saintes-Maries de la Mer. Enjoy some free time to explore the church containing the relics of St. Sara and to climb to the paved path that encircles the church roof and rewards with unforgettable views. Alternatively, relax on the beach and go for a swim in the sea.

Then, head to Arles to see the vast marsh lands that provide refuge to egrets, grey herons, swans and pink flamingoes. Learn about rice cultivation and visit the Roman amphitheater where the Course Camarguaise bullfight takes place.
