Avignon – Provence Private Tour by Well Arranged Travel
This delightful day trip in Provence is a treat for the senses. Your private tour in Provence begins with a walking tour of most charming cities in southern France: Avignon. Surrounded by imposing city walls, Avignon is well known as the residence of the Pope in the 14th century. You will visit the awesome Palace of the Popes and enjoy the enormous banquet rooms, original frescoes and floor tiles, and other details in its interior. The Palace paints a vivid portrait of the Pope’s life in that era.
Your Provence private tour will conclude with a tour of the Pont du Gard. This huge, perfectly preserved Roman aqueduct supplied running water to the city of Nimes and beyond. This marvel of engineering work has endured two millennia, attracting scientists, artists and visitors from all over the world. Your Provence tour guide will show you the 1,000-year-old olive tree a few yards away from this incredible site. This is one of the highlights of this Provence day trip. This magnificent monument is situated at the rim of Gardon Canyon. From its heights, one can admire the landscape of the valley and follow the flow of the Gard River, tributary of the Rhône.
