Full Day History of Provence
Walk & Wine Tour
Full Day Historyof Provence
The Full Day History of Provence & Wine Tour comprises of a morning walking history tour with my wife and part-time historian, Janet Henderson and is followed by an afternoon wine tour visiting the vineyards and cellars of two leading wine estates.
The guided walking tour recounts a compelling and colourful tale, providing you with the historical context to appreciate Vaison-la-Romaine – a jewel in the crown of papal Provence. The landscape, fountains, churches, castles, mansions, alleyways and squares acquire another dimension as we imagine the events and people that have left an indelible mark on Vaison and the land of the Popes. Listen to a fascinating blend of history, folk-tale and legend that makes the defining events of the last three millennia spring to life and explains how these events have shaped the cultural identity of the area.
The morning walking tour
In the afternoon
Morning Meeting Point :
The tour commences at 9.30am at a designated meeting point in Vaison-la-Romaine.
Own Transport Option :
You require your car to get to Vaison-la-Romaine in the morning and then to the designated wine tour meeting point after lunch. If you opt for the own transport option and I have space in my car then I could transport you from the meeting point.
Otherwise you would use your own vehicle (following me) for the tour. The distances between the vineyards and the cellars is usually no more than a few minutes .
