NEWTON, Mass. (PRWEB) July 12, 2019
Cézanne, Van Gogh, Chagall, and Matisse all drew inspiration from the storied beauty of Provence, and now savvy travelers can, as well, on Odysseys Unlimited’s new, affordably-priced 12-day small group tour: Discovering Provence with the French Riviera.
From billowy lavender fields to rose-hued salt marshes, hilltop villages to medieval towns, and traditional cowboy ranches to the French Riviera, Odysseys Unlimited’s small group relishes la vie Provençale with visits to Aix-en-Provence, Arles, and the quintessential Provençal villages of Lourmarin, Rousillon, Les Baux ,and Saint-Rémy; along with the Camargue region, Avignon, and Nice.
Odysseys Unlimited’s tour directors, consistently praised as the best in the industry, will guide the small group every joyful step of the way, illuminating historic sites such as Cézanne’s atelier in Aix, the Pont du Gard and the Palais des Papes (Papal Palace) in Avignon, and the UNESCO sites of Roman Arles, while also allowing ample time at leisure to stop and smell the sunflowers.
Small group highlights abound, including a private cooking class from a local Provençal chef, dinner and a wine tasting at a vineyard, a visit to a working manade (traditional ranch) in the Camargue, and a stay at a converted 17th-century convent.
