Visit Carrières de Lumière Light Show in Les Baux de Provence : The site, known since the Romans, is an ancient quarry from where the local limestone was extracted throughout the centuries to build towns and villages such as Glanum, Les Baux de Provence and its castle. Every year since the opening, the Carrières des Lumières operates a unique sound and light show that is devoted to a major artist. In 2022, it will feature an immersive experience dedicated to the town of Venice. Program will include a stroll along the Grand Canal, the discovery of the mosaique of Saint Marc basilica and paintings by Canaletto, Le Tintoret or Bellini. The short movie will be dedicated to Yves Klein and the infinite Blue.
Discover the small village of Les Baux de Provence : Classified as one of the most beautiful villages of France, Les Baux de Provence will be a highlight of your day. Perched on top of a natural plateau, the first fortified town dates back to the 10th century while the castle, that dominates the village, was built in the 13th century. The Renaissance period left its print on Les Baux de Provence with the building of beautiful private mansions that can still be seen today. Les Baux de Provence became an artistic and touristic destination that attracted famous artists.
As you reach the village, follow your guide for a walking tour. Pass through Eyguieres gate that was the only entrance to the village until 1866 and stroll through the narrow streets of the village. Admire the Hotel de Porcelet, a 16th century Private Mansion that now houses the Yves Brayer museum. Other attractions in the village include the White Penant's Chapel, the 12th century Saint Vincent Church with its stained-glass windows by Max Ingrand and of course the Château des Baux that is one of the most stunning of the region and that offers a breathtaking panorama. After your walking tour, enjoy some free time for personal discovery and lunch (at own expense).
Provence Wine Tasting : On your way, we will stop in a local Provence Winery so that you may taste some of the local wines that are produced in the region. The Côtes de Provence wine region spans over 20 000 hectares (roughly 50 000 acres) and has been recognized as an AOC since 1977. The highlight of your tasting will be Côtes de Provence rosé wine that are known for their aromas of fresh flower, yellow fruits and red fruits. You will also have the pleasure to taste reds & whites so as to cover the whole range of Provence wines.
