Private Tour to Avignon and Wine Tour in Southern Rhone Valley - full day

Wine tasting tour in Avignon

Tour Price : From 75 Euros per person Duration : 9 hours Languages: French, English

Join us for a full day tour to the charming commune of Avignon and sample the delicious wines of the southern Rhone Valley region. The tour to Avignon not only allows you to explore the rich culture and historical ramparts of one of France´s most intriguing cities, but you also get to sample some of the sumptuous red wines from one of the world´s most reputable wine making regions.

The private tour to Avignon is ideal for wine connoisseurs and lovers of gourmet food. In the morning you will discover the enchanting attractions of the city including the famous bridge (from the song), the historical ramparts and the awe-inspiring 14th Century Palace of the Popes (Palais des Papes). 

Looking out across the sultry waters of the River Rhone, the Palace of the Popes is a beguiling historical monument and the highlight of the morning´s tour in Avignon. The imposing 14th Century structure is a reminder of the overwhelming influence the Catholic Church has in Western Europe during the Middle-Ages and as you explore the impressive banquet halls and admire the stunning frescoes you will get an idea of the riches acquired by this dominating power.

The afternoon tour is in stark contrast to the historical insights of the morning as we head out to the North of Avignon where you will get the chance to taste some of the regions finest red wines and brush up on your wine tasting studies. Along the way you can admire the spectacular scenery of the countryside as we drive through acres of sprawling vines and soft, lush green fields.

A private tour of Avignon and wine tasting in the Rhine Valley promises to be an unforgettable experience for lovers of red wine and French culture.
