Provence and Camargue

8 Days 260 KmAVG 43 Km

Avignon, Arles and the Pont du Gard, 3 UNESCO World Heritage Sites! 'When God created the sun, the earth, the mountains and seas, and put them into place, he realized that a little of each element remained. So he gathered the bits together to make a paradise and Provence was born' A nice and nearly true story, isn't it? On this bike tour you discover Provence and the Camargue - a land of light, colors and scents. Hence, many well-known painters have lived in Provence: Picasso, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Matisse, Cézanne, and Chagall to name just a few. The Mediterranean climate is pleasant; the sun shines more than 3000 hours a year. People live outside, even during the short, crisp, and windy winter, and play "Pétanque" and drink their "Pastis". A place of true inspiration that lead to a series of amusing books by Peter Mayle! Provence not only has an easy way of life, but it’s also one of the richest cultural regions in Europe. Numerous monuments testify to a long and great past since the Greek and Roman period going to the middle Ages and, even into the last centuries. Highlights of this tour include Avignon: the famous Pope’s Palace (UNESCO World Heritage Site), the medieval town and its imposing wall; St. Rémy de Provence: in the heart of the Provence, has the best conserved Roman monuments at Les Antiques and Glanum, an ancient Greek town created 500 years before Christ.; Les Baux de Provence: a medieval hill top village in the Alpilles; Arles: where the whole city has been classified as a UNESCO world heritage site because of its numerous Roman and medieval monuments. Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer: a little village between the sea, the sky and the Camargue (nature reserve), the great delta of the Rhone river, where water, channels and lakes of varying degrees of salinity attract thousands of birds - some of them are very rare; it’s also known for its white horses and the black bulls; St. Gilles: possesses a beautiful Romanesque church with crypt (UNESCO world heritage); Uzès and lastly the Pont du Gard: aqueduct over the Gardon river, the best conserved from the Roman Empire. But being in Provence we can't forget the quality of the wine and the food! During the cycle tour you will discover the delicious Provencal dishes and their Mediterranean flavors.
