Day 1 - Nyons

Begin your discovery of Baronnies by visiting one of the beautiful locations that adorn the region: Nyons. The good life of Provence rubs shoulders with the typical crafts of the region, both underlined by the ubiquitous olives and aromatic plants in the city. Musée de l’Olivier (Olive Museum), Comptoir des Vieux Moulins (Old Mills) and the Distillerie Bleu-Provence, which provide a greater insight into the culture and processing of Provencal “green gold”. Enjoy a pleasant walk through old Nyons to the fourteenth century Romanesque bridge which you cross to reach the Belvedere that offers the widest view of the town. Spend the afternoon hiking through the Parc des Baronnies.
