Avignon Avignon

Day 1 - Avignon - Les Baux-de-Provence

Forty kilometres from Avignon, perched on a rock, Baux-de-Provence commands a fine panorama over the Alpilles, Luberon, Mont Ventoux and Cévennes. A former fortress and historic houses blend into the extraordinary rocky landscape. Nature lovers will be in seventh heaven in the heart of the Alpilles Regional Park (don’t miss La Caume plateau) before tacking back to spend the evening at Baux-de-Provence.

MyTripTailor advice : Book in advance for a show at the Carrières de Lumières.

Day 2 - Les Baux-de-Provence - Gordes / Roussillon / Venasque

Head to one of the highlights of Luberon, Gordes. Clinging to the hills of the Vaucluse plateau, it is home to the historic Bories village and Sénanque abbey. Also explore the delightful village of Roussillon, whose distinctive ochre colours offer a spectacular introduction to the Ochre Trail. Venasque, one of the most beautiful villages of France, is well worth exploring.

MyTripTailor advice : Not far from Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, discover the Roman ruins of the Antiques plateau or hop up to the rocky outcrop of Ménerbes.

  • Distance : 76 km
  • Duration : 1h39

Day 3 - Gordes / Roussillon / Venasque - Avignon

You will adore the former medieval city of Venasque and its exquisite squares adorned with fountains. Don’t miss its 11C baptistery (one of France’s oldest religious edifices). Back on the road to Avignon, capital of the popes in the 14C. In 1995, the Papal Palace and its emblematic Saint-Bénezet bridge became a UNESCO world heritage site.

MyTripTailor advice : North of Venasque, towards Mont Ventoux, don’t miss the impressive Castellaras viewpoint.
