Private Tour / Shore Excursion from Marseille
Join me to explore:
Arles : Nowadays, among other Roman remains, we still can see the amphitheater, the theater, the Constantine baths, . . .
Also, the medieval heritage is unique, such as the fine cloisters and portal of St. Trophime's church.
As Van Gogh lived in Arles, some places he painted are recognizable such as the famous cafe.
Les Baux de Provence is a little perched village situated in a very picturesque site, in the heart of the Alpilles.
Entering in the village is a real experience, it seems that the atmosphere is the same than 4 centuries ago. Its cultural heritage is exceptionally rich, with 22 architectural treasures classified as "Historic Monuments" (including the church, chateau, town-hall, hospital, chapels, houses, doorways. )
Saint Rémy de Provence is an interesting town because of its typical architecture: an old center with quaint 17th and 18th century houses and narrow cobblestone streets, surrounded with ramparts, around which is a circular boulevard, immortalized by Van Gogh
