of the Roman remains, the incredible three-tiered Pont du Gard, before arriving at the old Roman city of Nîmes. During your

Avignon and the Wines of Châteauneuf-du-Pape Excursion

conflict. Here the rapidly flowing river passes under the few remaining arches of the 12th century Pont Saint-Benezet, the Pont
d'Avignon of the famous song. Walk through the medieval battlements to reach the town centre, dominated by the fortified
Papal Palace. Now follow the Rhone to the village of Châteauneuf-du-Pape for an introduction to the wonderful wines of this
region. A votre santé! Return to Nîmes this afternoon where you are at leisure. Perhaps take an optional experience to Aigues
Mortes, completely encircled by ramparts-(Buffet Breakfast)

Drive to the beautiful town of Arles, ancient capital of Gaul and follow in the footsteps of Vincent Van Gogh during an orientation
tour. The Camargue begins at the gates of Arles, so return to Nîmes through part of this unique landscape. Soak up the
atmosphere at an outdoor café, visit the modern Carré d'Art or cool off amid the canals and shady walks of the Jardin de la
Fontaine. As night falls, perhaps join the locals for a glass of the local wine or ‘pastis' in the bars and restaurants. For your
dining pleasure, you are offered a fine selection of local restaurants to choose from on your Dine-Around Evening. Bon appetit!

mountains and sea. Drive on to the Principality of Monaco, ruled by the Grimaldi family since the 13th century.(Buffet Breakfast)
