The Provence countryside is remarkable for its beautiful colors and smells (lavender fields), its perfect climate, its tasty local products sold on typical food markets (olives and olive oil, strawberries, melons, herbs) and for its perched villages. One of them, Les Baux de Provence is an enchanting village perched on a rocky promontory with paved tiny streets and castle ruins. It offers a panoramic view of the countryside. Arles is an adorable city displaying beautiful stone buildings from the Renaissance period and antique Roman monuments (amphitheater). Avignon is a beautiful city with ramparts and pink tiles roofs and impressive monuments (le Palais des Papes, the ruins of the bridge known as le pont d’Avignon). Marseille, the eclectic and millennial city on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, and the Calanques, magnificent white cliffs falling into the blue sea alternating with small sandy creeks, are worth the trip.
