Delve into Provence and discover Roman architecture and winemaking heritage on this 4- to 5-hour day trip to Orange and Châteauneuf-du-Pape from Avignon. Follow your guide through the UNESCO World Heritage-listed town of Orange. Admire top attractions such as the mighty Triumphal Arch and the Roman amphitheater. Travel by air-conditioned minivan through the rolling vineyards of the Rhône Valley, where grapes like Grenache flourish. Visit a local wine cellar in Châteauneuf-du-Pape for a tasting session and enjoy personal attention from your guide on this small-group tour, limited to eight people.

Meet your guide during a pickup at your hotel in Avignon, then hop aboard your air-conditioned minivan for the 30-minute journey to the nearby town of Orange. Founded by the Romans in the 1st century, the UNESCO World Heritage town of Orange is widely considered home to some of the most impressive Roman architecture in Europe.

On arrival in Orange, follow your guide on a tour of the town and its Roman monuments. Discover top attractions such as the Triumphal Arch — a powerful symbol of the glory of ancient Rome — and admire the magnificent Roman amphitheater, considered by many to be the best-reserved Roman theater in existence. Visit on a Thursday and perhaps explore the local market, time permitting.

Leave Orange behind and head on through the vineyards of the Rhône Valley, where grape varieties such as Cinsault, Grenache and Counoise thrive in the mineral-rich soil. Listen as your guide details the region’s rich winemaking heritage and stop for panoramic views of the Rhône Valley from the hilltop castle at Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Enjoy a wine-tasting session in a cellar in Châteauneuf-du-Pape and gain insight into the delicate flavors the grapes produce in the wine.

After a little free time to browse a traditional shop for souvenirs, hop back aboard your minivan for the return journey to Avignon, where your tour will conclude.

Great tour. Our tour guide Emilie was very informative and sweet. She picked us up from the hotel and we saw Orange and the vineyards of Chateauneuf de Pape and had a very nice wine tasting at one of the wineries. I recommend this tour
