Bright sunshine and the warm patina of history make Provence a favorite destination for history buffs, foodies, wine connoisseurs, photographers—quite simply, everyone.
You may just be one of the few fortunate travelers to join this 8 day Brendan Slow Food vacation, which brings front and center the iconic delights of the region, from its uniquely crafted wines and cheeses to its marvelously preserved medieval towns, pretty harbors and grand papal palaces. Investigate cities that are so significant that they are UNESCO World Heritage Sites, meet working fishermen, taste authentic bouillabaisse, see the towns that were home to Van Gogh and Cézanne. This is an intimate experience, one that invites strolling rather than rushing, deep appreciation rather than fleeting glimpses. Priced from $3,239 land only, based on double occupancy.
