At Marseille port, meet your guide before driving through beautiful Provence countryside at the start of this wonderful day out. Your first stop, Arles was said to be founded by the Roman Emperor Julius Caesar in 46 B.C. This picture-perfect town has also been an inspiration to a handful of famous artists, including the Dutch post-impressionist Vincent Van Gogh, who painted over 100 canvases while living here from 1888 to 1889. View the two-tiered Roman amphitheater, which once seated 20,000 spectators and features 129 arches. Visit the 5th-century St. Trophime Church, and the Republic Square with its Roman obelisk. Enjoy a delicious lunch at a local restaurant before heading to the village of Les Baux de Provence. Located on a bare rock spur, it is dominated by a ruined castle and features dramatic ravines and narrow cobbled lanes.
