Here, you’ll go on a guided walk of this medieval treasure with Roman ruins and a fascinating 16th-century castle. Stop in the picturesque village of Viviers, where, during your walking tour, you will taste local products. In Avignon, visit the Palace of the Popes and take pictures of the bridge in the famous song “Sur le pont d’Avignon.” This remarkable river cruise will take you to Arles, the capital of the Provence region and famous for its 1st-century Roman Amphitheatre. Disembark your river cruise ship in Port-Saint-Louis and transfer to Nice for your final two nights in France. Then, fly to Barcelona, Spain for guided sightseeing with an expert Local Guide.
