Tours led by professional guides to reveal the treasures of our region, including Mont Ventoux, Dentelles de Montmirail, Monts de Vaucluse and the Comtadine plain.
Home to the Popes for many a century, Comtat Venaissin has a distinctly Italian feel. It has been ranked "Pays d'Art de d'Histoire" (Land of Art and History) by the Ministry of Culture, in recognition of its architectural and historical wealth, along with its agriculture, viticulture and crafts; not forgetting, of course, its landscapes and its unique lifestyle, a blend of quintessential Provence and Rome. There's a wide variety of tours on offer, covering a vast area from Gigondas to Venasque, through Carpentras, Bedoin and Malaucène. Here are a few of the themed guided tours you can take: - Medieval Carpentras - Baroque Carpentras - The Pope's Jews (including visit to the Carpentras synagogue, France's oldest active synagogue) - Romanesque Chapels of Ventoux - Hilltop Villages of Dentelles de Montmirail or Monts de Vaucluse - Rural Heritage In Winter:- Christmastime in Provence - Carpentras, Capital of the Black Truffle
