Know More about this tour

Book a day trip from Paris to Avignon and Provence by the TGV train, and you will get a taste of the South of France.

Below is a well-drafted itinerary that is typically followed during this day trip to Avignon and Provence.

Board the clean and fast TGV train early morning from Paris. As the train makes its way through the French countryside, you get to admire the Rhone Valley and the picturesque Burgundy. Upon arrival in Avignon, head to the Pope’s Palace (Palais des Papes), one of Europe’s largest Gothic palaces and part of the UNESCO World Heritage site known as the Historic Centre of Avignon: Papal Palace, Episcopal Ensemble and Avignon Bridge. Tour the palace independently, listening to recorded narration about how Avignon became the City of the Popes.

You then have some free time at your leisure. Get some delicious lunch (at your own expense) and wander through the historic center. Then aboard the coach along with your guide and make way towards Provence.

Stop for a photo op of the Roman ruins Les Antiques at St Remy de Provence, where Nostradamus was born, and then head to Les Baux de Provence, a medieval village perched on a rocky cliff, more than 800 feet (245 meters) in the air. Take a walking tour of the village on your own, exploring its historical buildings and market stalls where you can purchase souvenirs like perfume and olive oil.

Then visit Pont du Gard, a World Heritage-listed Roman aqueduct, one of the best-preserved of its kind. Enjoy a bit of free time here to take photos and admire the postcard-perfect setting!

Now it is time for the return journey to Paris by boarding the train in Avignon.
