Tour Description :

Visit the sophisticated city of Avignon: stroll on top of the Rocher des Doms that will offer you wonderful views of the Rhône river, the famous bridge, and the city walls. Follow your private licensed tour guide through the amazing Palace of the Popes built in the 14th century when the Popes settled in Avignon.

The huge banquet room, the frescoes, and the colorful floor tiles will give you an idea of the Pope’s life during that time.

You will spend the afternoon north of Avignon, discovering the famous vineyards of Châteauneuf-du-Pape and taste the outstanding red and white wines produced in this area at a private wine tasting. The Grenache variety is the king of Châteauneuf but is blended with many other varieties, generally Syrah and Mourvèdre but not only since 13 grape varieties are allowed in the blends of Châteauneuf-du-Pape which is totally exceptional.
