Discover the Stunning Cities and Scenery of Provence

Photo stop at the Antiques and St Paul de Mausole (Roman monuments and the mental hospital where Van Gogh was interned from 1889 to 1890). Continuation to the exceptional village Les Baux de Provence. From the Middle Ages, the village has kept the narrow streets, the imposing remains of a castle and the memory of the proud lords and troubadours. From the rocky spur, it’s a breathtaking view on an exceptional scenery that amazes all the visitors. In Arles, discover the city by a leisure walk on the footsteps of Vincent Van Gogh to discover the places where he created his most famous paintings dated back to 1888.
