Itinerary and map
Explore at your own pace
Provence is rich in colours, just like the pallet of Van Gogh, who stayed here from 1888-1889. You will be free to paint your own canvas as you cycle through the region, exploring its history, culture, cuisine and wine. First, Mount Ventoux will challenge you to bike as far up to its summit as you can! Then the Pont du Gard will reveal the incredible ingenuity of the Roman era. You will be amazed by the magnificent stage of the Théâtre d’orange - the best preserved theatre in Europe. And Lourmarin, resting place of writer Albert Camus, is considered one of the most beautiful villages in France. Add to this many kilometers of cycling through local vineyards and you will be thoroughly dazzled by your eight days in the Land of Light!
