13-Day Tours Provence
Day 3: Orange, Chateauneuf-du-Pape:
We visit Orange and view the spectacular “Theatre Antique”, a colossal Roman theatre built during the reign of Caesar Augustus. Today this theatre inspires and houses world-class plays and concerts. Orange is also the site of the striking Arc de Triomphe that once straddled Via Agrippa between Lyon and Arles. We will also visit “vieil Orange,” the old-town neighborhood you must cross to hike from one Roman monument to the other. We will visit Chateauneuf-du-Pape and sample the great Cru wines before concluding the day tour with an authentic Couscous dinner.
