In the morning, drive to the city of Orange founded by the Romans in the 1st century BC. You will admire the very-well preserved Triumphal Arch and the Roman Theater which is still used nowadays for lyrical music festival during the summer season.

On Thursdays, stroll in the open-air provencal market in Orange.

Continuation to the vineyards of Châteauneuf-du-Pape located a few kilometers away from Orange. During a panoramic tour of the vineyard, your driver will provide explanations about "terroir", grape varieties or vinification. Stop at cellar and enjoy a wine-tasting (included) : taste the increasingly sought-after white wines produced and the powerful red-wines of the worldwide-famous appellation.
