St Rémy de Provence Les Baux de Provence, Arles
Full day Tour 8h
The charms of the very Provencal market town of Saint Rémy de Provence are manifold and have attracted artists and celebrities for many decades. Its gracious boulevards shaded by plane trees, its muddle of narrow streets in the old town centre, with handsome mansions, its markets and gardens, and gay pavement cafés would be enough to make it an important tourist destination, but it also has an extremely rich historical heritage with the ancient roman city Glanum site, and mainly one of the main place where Van Gogh lived and was inspired
This rock village is perched on a rocky ridge that rises dramatically out of the Alpilles range. The fort's unique location on a rock combined with the stunning views over the Camargue and the Rhône delta draw countless visitors to this car-free town. At the foot of the village the 'Carrière de Lumière ( quary of lights) is a unique and different way to rediscover the work of major painters. . Definitely something unique to see during your private tour Alpilles
The Gateway to the Camargue was an area settled by the Celts, the Greeks and the Romans. Emperor Constantine had splendid residence here. Today, Arles still has important roman buildings: the amphitheater with a capacity of 20000, the theater, which could fit 12000 people. The Romanesque Church of St-Trophime is a masterpiece of Provencal stone masonry, with a portal from 1190. The Romanesque-Gothic cloister adjacent to the church is considered the most beautiful in all Provence.
