We arrive by boat on the sun-kissed shores of glitzy St. Tropez for a leisurely morning sojourn to soak up our glamorous surrounds. Continuing to Arles, we admire the Romanesque Cathedral and Roman amphitheatre, once the site of bloody battles and exhilarating chariot races. Tread in the footsteps of Vincent Van Gogh with your Local Specialist exploring the fascinating heritage of a city that was once an important Phoenician trading port. We arrive in the ancient city of Avignon, once the Seat of the Papacy and today a popular pilgrimage site, where we will spend the next two nights. Our orientation of this extraordinary historic city includes views of the imposing Palace of the Popes and the famous ruined bridge straddling the River Rhône, which inspired the famous French song, sur le pont d'Avignon.
