Your ship leaves Avignon early in the morning, making its way south to Arles.
After breakfast, follow in the footsteps of the past in Arles, either on your own or on our guided city tour with a visit to the historic Roman arena. Alternatively, there is an excursion to Tarascon, which lies exactly between Avignon and Arles and nestles picturesquely on the left bank of the Rhône - and has done so for around 2,000 years
After lunch, you can discover more of Arles' artistic side. The Provençal town once captured the imagination of the brilliant impressionist painter, Vincent van Gogh, amongst others. You can learn more about the rich history of Arles during the optional morning tour and take a break at the café that served as the model for one of van Gogh’s famous works, ‘Café Terrace at Night’. You may feel that walking through the town might induce a sense of déjà-vu since many of the settings may be familiar from some of van Gogh’s best-known pieces.
The alternative afternoon excursion is to the tranquility of nature of the Camargue Nature Park. Home to the renowned Camargue bulls and white Camargue horses, the unique wetland area is a sight to discover. You will also pay a visit to the historic coastal village of Saintes Maries de la Mer before returning to the ship.
In the evening, whilst at dinner your ship will continue on its way to Châteauneuf-du-Rhône where the boat will overnight.
