Day 2 - Alpes Maritimes - Aix-En-Provence
Nestled in the hills north of Cannes, Grasse is where world-class perfumes are created. So, it's only right that

reproductions of the painter's work. Meals - Breakfast & Lunch

Day 6 - Saint-Remy-de-Provence - Pont du Gard - Avignon - Saint-Remy-de-Provence

for two nights in the area. Meals - Breakfast

incredible sight. Tonight, we'll settle down to a final dinner together. Meals - Breakfast & Dinner
