What to do in Provence?
Provence is a region in the south of France that offers many activities. The villages of the Alpilles are ideal for family and sporty hikes, whether on foot, by bike (VTT) or on horseback. To make the most of a stay in Aix-en-Provence, a trip to the Sainte-Victoire mountain will be an opportunity to appreciate the Mediterranean and Alpine vegetation, representing the emblematic landscapes of Cézanne's paintings. Attending the Avignon Festival or a performance in the main courtyard of the Palais des Papes is an interesting cultural activity during your stay in Provence. And finally, a hike in the Mont Ventoux nature reserve is an opportunity to observe wildlife up close, including raptors and chamois.
Where to eat in Provence?
Bouillabaisse, a fish-based soup with leeks, tomatoes, onions, fennel, olive oil and other vegetables and herbs, is the most emblematic Provençal dish. Aïoli is another typical dish based on salted cod, steamed potatoes, carrots, garlic sauce, olive oil and mayonnaise. In addition, tapenade, anchoïade, tomatoes à la provençale and ratatouille are also typical of Provençal gastronomy. These typical dishes are served in the restaurants of the big cities and the bistros of the villages of Provence. Provençal wines are also a particular attraction, along with typical dishes accompanied by fresh vegetables and seafood.
What to visit in Provence?
Every town in Provence is worth a visit, but if you don't have enough time, you can visit the main sites. There is the Abbey of Sénanque for its historical buildings, the beautiful and elegant city of Aix-en-Provence and its Italian baroque, Avignon, the ancient city of the Popes, Camargue for its regional natural park, its ponds, or the green valleys of Haute-Ubaye.
Where to stroll around in Provence?
A walk in Arles is a must to appreciate its narrow streets and the colorful facades of its buildings.
