'This is the most beautiful wall of my kingdom.' Louis XIV, the 'Sun King', was impressed when he saw the stage wall of the amphitheatre in Orange for the first time. It is one of the best preserved antique theatres in Europe. You can see the traces of the Romans everywhere, but the everyday life of today is also worth experiencing. After visiting the amphitheatre you will have some free time. The typical dried herbal mixtures are a great souvenir to take home the taste of Provence. In Avignon you will come back on board.

Where land and sea merge, something wonderful is created. The Camargue is a natural wonder. And you will experience it first hand on this bus tour - with its flocks of flamingos and the famous white horses, the fauna is truly unique. Today, the free-roaming white Camargue horses and Camargue cattle are not wild animals anymore, but are kept on wide pastures that are typical for the region. We will continue to Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, a major pilgrimage site and a touristic hub of the Camargue. The Notre-Dame-de-la-Mer church from the 9th century houses sacred relics of Marie Saloné and Marie Jacobé. Since 1448, a pilgrimage to the church has been held twice per year. The centre of veneration of Saint Sarah, also known as Sara the Black, is also here in Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, a place of pilgrimage for Roma. After a short walk you will have some free time.
