French cultural treasures from Aix
Provence produce wine for 2600 years. We can say that the tradition is well established and the f the Côte du Rhone area can be historically included in Provence, it's closely connected to it and our roman heritage.
This heritage is also marked by the presence of the Pope in Avignon for nearly 70 years during the Middle ages. The palace of the popes, largest medieval construction in Europe, is of course the best testimony of this glorious period.
Chateauneuf-du-Pape is also connected to this history, even if today the village is mostly famous for its wines, among the best ones in the world.
All this is very serious, that is why we'd like to discover all this with a friendly and relaxed tour to those places, in order to discover the human side behind the stones and the dates, and see that behind the mythic names lies a reality made of charm and passion.
We can visit one or two vineyards, it is up to you, just let me know in advance.
