Visit two local wineries with your guide and gain insight into the grape varieties which flourish here. Counoise, Muscardin and Picardin are all known to grow well, but there are many more! Admire row after row of lush vines and learn of the age-old winegrowing techniques still in use today. Enjoy tasting sessions at each of the wineries during your visits and gain appreciation of the delicate flavors at play in your glass.
In the afternoon, continue on to the UNESCO World Heritage–listed Pont du Gard — a mighty aqueduct built by the Romans in the 1st century. Enjoy panoramic views over the Gardon River below and listen as your guide details the aqueduct’s historical significance.
Head onward into the Alpilles Mountains and visit the picturesque medieval village of Les Baux de Provence. Perched on a rocky limestone outcrop, the village boasts amazing views over the French countryside. Gain insight into the village’s rich heritage from your guide, then continue on to Gordes — widely considered the most attractive village in France.
In Gordes, enjoy free time to explore at your leisure. Perhaps find a local café or restaurant for lunch (own expense) and take the time to explore the cobbled streets. Like Les Baux de Provence, Gordes sits high in the Alpilles Mountains and the views over the landscape below are breathtaking.
When it’s time to leave Gordes behind, hop back in your minivan and travel back to your hotel in Avignon, where your day trip will come to an end.
