Enjoy a shared full day trip from Marseille to visit the town of Avignon the some of the most beautiful villages of the Luberon region. On this small group shared full day tour our expert English speaking driver guides will have you discover the city of the popes and the beautiful hilltop villages of Provence.

In the morning, we will come and pick you up at a centrally located meeting point in Marseille. Meet your tour guide who will go over the itinerary and program of the day with you. Then, board your comfortable A/C vehicle and depart for your full day shared tour.

Avignon Town

Reach the town of Avignon. Upon arrival, enjoy a walking tour of Avignon with your guide. During the guided tour you will admire the fortifications and mighty ramparts of the town, the famous Saint Benezet Bridge, Notre Dames des Doms cathedral, church and gardens and have some time to visit the Pope’s palace on your own (entrance fees not included). Lunch will be on your own in Avignon and you will also have some free time to explore the historical city center.

Gordes village

After lunch, it will be time to head out to the village of Gordes, classified as one of the most beautiful villages in France. Facing the Luberon mountain range, the village is composed of small paved streets, known as calades, where it feels so nice to get lost in. To mostly appreciate this unique village, magic operates in spring and autumn as summer is very crowded by the number of visitors.

Roussillon village visit

Roussillon is a typical hilltop village located just above a rock formation called the “Provencal Colorado“. Here, you will have some time for personal discovery that will allow you to stroll down the village or walk along the “ochre path”, a 30-minute walk. After the visit it will be time to head back to Marseille and once you have arrived, this will be the end of our services.

As Provence Specialists, please note that we also conduct private tours, shore excursions, wine tasting tours departing from Marseille. Other important destinations to discover provence include the town of Aix en Provence, the Pont du Gard, the village of Les Baux de Provence, Chateauneuf du Pape for the wines, Van Gogh tours, the lavender fields and so much more.
