The Rhone valley is the second largest wine-growing region of France, where vineyards thrive on both sides of the river. Stop at the local winery to discover the different works needed to make a wine: grape varieties, viticulture, oenology.

Then continue to Lyon. The city is known for its historical and architectural landmarks and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Lyon was historically known as an important area for the production and weaving of silk and in modern times has developed a reputation as the capital of gastronomy in France. It has a significant role in the history of cinema due to Auguste and Louis Lumière who invented the cinematographer in Lyon.

Day 6 - Aix-en-Provence, France

An urban city noted for its elegance and high-culture, Aix has been settled by some of France’s preeminent minds and artists. Most notable of all is Paul Cézanne who immortalized the limestone peak of the Montagne Sainte-Victoire, which rises to the east of the city. Join your leader for orientation walk, the rest of an afternoon is free to explore the area as you wish.

Perhaps see the baroque and rococo 17th and 18th-century “hôtels” in the Quartier Mazarin, and stroll along Cours Mirabeau, the boulevard where Camus and Hemingway would have come for lunch when they lived in the city. Wondering through the streets and squares of the old town is one of the great pleasures in life. But it’s not just historic and picturesque – Aix in the 21st century is also affluent and chic, a little piece of the Paris left bank transported to the South.
