Provence's picture-perfect reputation exists in so many different, but equally stunning forms.
Rocky mountains flatten into sweeping farmlands, eventually giving way to the dramatic and wild coastline.
3 days and 2 nights getaway in Provence
This itinerary is an schedule example - we can tailor the trip to your preferences
Day 1 — visit Avignon city (2 hours private tour)
The Palais des Papes, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is an exclusive witness to the time when the papal seat moved to France.
After visiting the Palace, walk to the Parc du Palais des Papes, on the top of Rocher des Doms, for some fresh air and great views. The Rocher des Doms is the highest point of the city on which the Palace was built. The Ramparts of Avignon are listed as UNESCO World Heritage, and they were built between 1355-1370 to protect the city from the assaults of mercenaries.
After visiting the Pont d’Avignon, enter the walled city through the Porte du Rocher and wander around the narrow medieval streets at your own pace.
- Place de l’Horloge, the heart of the city, with the City Hall and the Opera-Theater built in the 19th century
- Hotel des Monnaies (Place du Palais), with its beautiful Baroque façade, is also listed UNESCO World Heritage
- Quartier de la Balance, which still has some houses of the 15th century. It is a lively neighborhood with shops of regional products and souvenirs
- Rue Petite Fusterie, with beautiful private mansions built in the 17th and 18th centuries

Day 3 - Lavender fields
· In our opinion, the best spot to admire Lavender fields is Valensole, this is the most famous one in Provence and around the world. These purple flowers are everywhere in Plateau de Valensole and you really don't go wrong visiting this charming place. Provence's fields start to bloom in June - by the end of the month, most of the region's lavender will be flowering. The fields peak in early to mid-July.
