Half Day History of

Provence Walk

History ofProvence

The Half Day History of Provence Tour is guided by my wife and part-time historian, Janet Henderson.

The guided three hour 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.
