    What to Expect
    Your voyage through ancient Provence begins with afternoon pickup from your Avignon hotel. Meet your knowledgeable guide and sit back for the short ride to Nîmes, where your half-day tour kicks off. Along the way, learn a bit about the city’s Roman roots, so well preserved that Nîmes is considered one of Europe’s most important historic cities.  

    In Nîmes, immerse yourself in story as your guide explains the city’s main monuments, some of the most impressive in France. See Maison Carrée, a remarkably preserved temple built to honor Emperor Augustus’ two heirs. Visit the Arènes de Nîmes (Nîmes Arena), a formidable Roman amphitheater built in the 1st century, as well as Augustus’ Gate.

    Next, travel to the quaint medieval town of Uzès, an ancient city that served as a medieval stronghold. Stroll narrow streets to visit the Fenestrelle Tower, Place aux Herbes (the main square) and Saint-Théodorit d'Uzès Cathedral. Then finish your tour at the nearby Pont du Gard, a UNESCO-listed aqueduct on the Gardon River. Considered an ancient work of art, this three-tiered construction is the highest of all elevated Roman aqueducts. 

    Your fun and educational tour concludes with return to your Avignon hotel in the evening.
