The South of France is a magical place to visit during the warmer months—especially the Provence region. It was once the Roman colony of Provincia, established in 120 B.C. at Aix-en-Provence, and still boasts many monuments and ruins from that era. Travel back in time as you explore the Nîmes Arena and the “Maison Carrée,” the Orange Theater, Arles’s Amphitheater, and the iconic Pont du Gard. There aren’t many places in the world that offer Romanesque and Gothic edifices, so make the most of it!
Provence is also a wonderful place to unwind. You’ll love driving past rolling hills, discovering charming little villages like Les-Baux-de-Provence, Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, and Uzes. You can also explore bigger cities filled with history like Avignon and Arles. Walk down the narrow cobblestone streets, sip glasses of rosé in authentic French cafes, and discover numerous farmer’s markets (where you can find amazing local products). Between olives, spices, lavender, fresh bread, charcuterie, and cheese, you’re up for an unforgettable culinary experience.
