Upon reaching Avignon, set on a scenic bend of the Rhône River, you will have a good grasp of the area's fascinating history, delivered in detail by your guide. While a marvelous city of art and culture, Avignon is most famous for being home to seven popes the 14th century, who chose to reside here rather than in Rome. The incredible Palace of the Popes was constructed primarily during the papacies of Benedict XII and Clement VI and was one of the largest buildings of its time. You'll visit this fascinating fortress-cum-residence, which consists of sumptuously decorated chambers, chapels, and passages. Afterward, your guide will lead you on a walking tour through the enchanting old town, and then you'll drive into the Alpilles Range to the amazing hilltop village of Les Baux. It sits atop a rocky mountain spur like an eagle's nest, perched 800 feet above the valley floor.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 3 1/2 hours of extensive walking, at times over uneven surfaces and up hillsides. There are also steps to negotiate. This tour is not considered suitable for wheelchair guests or guests with mobility concerns. Comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
