Singles Friendly Cycling in Provence and Camargue
Event Details Section

PROVENCE AND CAMARGUE - 8 day Escorted tour

Provence has an easy way of live, and is also one of the richest cultural regions of Europe. Numerous monuments testify a long and great past since the Greek and Roman period going to the Middle Ages.

Avignon: the famous Pope Palace (world heritage), the medieval town and its imposing wall;
Glanum: Greek and Roman monuments;
Les Baux: medieval town in the Alpilles;
Tarascon: the greatest fortified castle of the Rhone valley;
Arles: the whole city has been classified as world heritage because of its numerous Roman and medieval monuments;
Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer: little village between the sea, the sky and the Camargue;
St. Gilles: possesses a beautiful romanesque church with crypt (world heritage);
Pont du Gard: aqueduct over the Gardon river, the best preserved of the Roman empire (world heritage).
And at last, there is the Camargue (nature reserve), the great delta of the Rhone river, where water, channels and seas attract thousands of birds - some of them are very rare; its symbols are the white horses and the black bulls. We also have to mention the quality of wine and food. During the cycle tour you will discover the great meals of Provence and their Mediterranean flavour.
