A day tour in Camargue
Arles - Saintes Maries de la Mer - Aigues Mortes
Full day tour - Dep: 9.00am / Ret: 5.30pm
Let’s head for the Camargue, to explore Arles, an ancient Roman city and a UNESCO
world heritage site. The biggest urban centre in France offers an architectural heritage
which is the only one of its kind in the world. You can visit the Amphitheatre, the
Ancient Theatre, the Alyscamps, the Sainte Trophime church… You can also follow in
the footsteps of the painter Vincent Van Gogh when he stayed in the city.
We’ll cross the Regional Natural Reserve of the Camargue, in particular the Etang
de Vaccarès, where you can see pink flamingoes, bulls, horses from the Camargue…
on our way Saintes Maries de la Mer to walk around the marina and visit the town
and the 12th century church. You can have a leisurely lunch in this old fishing village
which has since become a seaside resort.
The private sightseeing tour in Camargue will draw to a close as we go across the
salt lakes of the Camargue Gardoise, to visit the medieval fortress of Aigues Mortes
protected by 1634metres of ramparts with 20 towers positioned along them. You can
visit the Constance Tower, which is more than 40 metres high and offers a spectacular
view of the Camargue, salt tables and mounds of salt or camelles from the salt marshes.
