The land of light, colours and scents. For these reasons, many well known painters have lived in Provence: Picasso, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Matisse, Cézanne, Chagall. The Mediterranean climate is pleasant, the sun shines more than 3000 hours a year. The people enjoy the outdoors, even during the winter when they still play "pétanque" and drink their "pastis". Provence is one of the richest cultural regions of Europe. Numerous monuments testify a long and great past since the Greek and Roman period, through the Middle Ages and to the last centuries.
Important towns on the route are: Avignon, famous for the Popes Palace (world patrimony), the medieval town and its imposing wall and the song about the bridge – “Sur Le Pont D’Avignon”; Orange has the best preserved Roman monuments such as the theatre and the triumphal arch; hilltop Vaison la Romaine is a cross between a Roman city and medieval town. You'll cycle beautiful landscapes to Fontaine de Vaucluse which has the deepest spring in the world, pass the famous vineyards of the Côtes du Rhône, typical villages of Provence such as Gordes and Roussillon with its splendid ochre rocks, the lavender fields at the foot of the Lubéron, visit the beautiful Cistercian Abbey of Sénanque surrounded by lavender fields, and stay in the lovely town of Isle Sur-la-Sorgue. Not to mention the quality of wine and food during the cycle tour would be a great omission. You will discover the excellent cuisine of Provence with its’ wonderful Mediterranean flavour when you dine each night at specially chosen restaurants.
