Just when you think Provence couldn’t be better… I signed up with Florence for a tour of the Baux, Arles and the Pont du Gard to guide me through these most beautiful cities and Roman heritages. The introduction in the morning was seamless and Florence gave us a clear overview of the day. We had the best views and the easiest access. Her presentation of the Baux was a source of inspiration and the guided tour of Arles was excellent. But all this was delivered with humor and professionalism. The bridge of the Gard was magnificent; what a legacy. The visit was perfectly punctuated by time for lunch and snacks, ice cream, etc. Thank you Florence. We had the best time. This tour definitely cemented my tie with Provence.
