1. From Marseille: Arles, Les Baux and Saint Rémy de Provence

Through the Crau Plain, this full-day tour will take you to the Grand Rhône River bank, where the ancient city of Arles is located. Following the footsteps of Van Gogh, you will discover the Roman vestiges with the coliseum and the ancient theatre, the 12th century Saint Trophime Church, the Forum Square where the statue of the provincial poet Frédéric Mistral stands, as well as Van Gogh's bridge, Hotel Dieu, and Van Gogh’s Café. Later, on the road that leads you to Les Baux-de-Provence, you will make a stopover at the 10th century Montmajour Abbey and at the Mill of Daudet, the famous place where Alphonse Daudet found inspiration to write his letters. Enjoy lunch on your own, in the perched village of Les Baux-de-Provence. In the afternoon, you will visit an olive property in the Baux valley well known for its olive trees before continuing through the Alpilles mountains to Saint-Rémy-de-Provence to discover its antique Roman monuments. From March to December, it is possible to attend the sound and light show about Vincent Van Gogh in Les Carrières de Lumières (entrance fee not included) instead of visiting the village.

A very good tour

Lots of free time which I loved. Very professional guide, excellent driver. 3 great destinations.

Florence was friendly and extremely knowledgeable. We adored this tour and highly recommend it

The places are very nice sometimes it would take a little more time to enjoy the ride more

All these villages are magnificent and worth the detour.
