The program of this trip in Baux-de-Provence and Arles
Throughout this day, I will be both your driver and guide. I will show you around Les Baux-de-Provence and Arles since, as an official guide, I am authorized to guide you in these places.
The Carrières de Lumières are a huge set of underground quarries transformed into a sound and light show in 1978.
You will walk for an hour through these quarries, discovering the giant representations of masterpieces of painting projected on the walls, pillars and on the ground.
Photos are allowed. The interior temperature of the quarries is 14 ° C to 16 ° C (57 ° F / 61 ° F) year round.

We will stroll together in the alleys of Baux-de-Provence. I will show you some magnificent facades and the charming little Saint-Vincent church.
Our route will take us to the impressive plateau which overlooks the village and the magnificent Baux valley.
You will then have free time to enjoy Les Baux-de-Provence and have lunch, before continuing our journey to Arles.
If you want to visit the Château des Baux, or spend more time in the village, we can adapt the program of the day : either by not visiting the Carrières de Lumières, or by reducing the time spent visiting Arles.
Arles is undoubtedly the French city which has preserved the greatest number of Roman monuments.
During our walking tour, we will visit the amphitheater (exterior and interior), we will observe the ancient theater (exterior view) and then we will go to discover the Saint-Trophime cathedral (the portal and the interior).
If you want to spend more time in Arles, it will be possible to visit the cryptoporticos, the thermal baths of Constantine, the necropolis of Alyscamps, even the cloister of Saint-Trophime, but for that we will have to reduce the time spent in the morning at Baux-de-Provence.
We will then return to your starting point.
It is possible to end this excursion elsewhere than at your starting point. I can drop you off in Avignon if you wish to stay there for one or more nights.
I can also take you to Marseille, Nice, or even Lyon for example. If you are interested, contact me without delay, I will tell you the supplement to pay.
