This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Fontaine de Vaucluse, Fontaine de Vaucluse, Vaucluse, Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur

After a 45-minute drive from Avignon, your tour guide will first stop in the charming little town of Fontaine de Vaucluse, nestled along the shores of the river Sorgue at the end of a narrow lush green valley. You'll have here some free time to discover on your own its impressive spring, where water flows out from a mysterious chasm. While taking a walk along the shaded pedestrian roads of the village, prepare to be amazed by the emerald green colour of the water and the peaceful atmosphere of this unique place. An ancient watermill still producing traditional paper can be visited in the town, as well as a lovely Romanesque church dating back in the 11th century. After you've visited Fontaine, your guide will meet you again at the meeting point and take you to the next destination.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Vieille Ville de Gordes, Gordes France

On the way to the old town of Gordes, a photo stop at Gordes' famous overlook is planned. Here you'll have the chance to admire one of the most incredible panoramas of the Luberon valley, where vineyards and olive groves stretch out as far as the eye can see, surrounded by gentle green mountains. Minutes later, your driver will drop you off by the town's castle from where you can easily explore the cobbled streets of this world-known hilltop town and admire stunning views of the Luberon landscapes. Plenty of shopping opportunities are available here, as well as small cafés and icecream shops. Meet your tour guide again at the meeting point and head to another wonderful village.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Roussillon, Roussillon, Gordes, Luberon, Vaucluse, Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur

At around 1 pm your tour guide will drop you in the village of Roussillon, where you'll have a longer time to spend than in the other towns. This allows everyone to have lunch in one of the cafés or snack bars and to explore the colourful streets of Roussillon, where every house is painted a different shade of ochre. If you opt for a quick lunch on the go, you'll also have enough time to walk the beautiful Ochre Trail (entrance fee not included - 3.50€/adult), a developed pathway through the ombre coloured cliffs of a former ochre mine.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Menerbes, Menerbes, Luberon, Vaucluse, Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur

Meet your guide back after lunch and continue your journey through the Luberon valley. Discover another hill-top town, Ménerbes, listed as one of the most beautiful villages of France. Enjoy a relaxing walk on the peaceful streets of this fortified village, that inspired the British author Peter Mayle to write the successful novel «One year in Provence». Afterwards, your guide will drive you back to Avignon, where you'll arrive between 5 and 5.30 pm.

Duration: 1 hour
