• The beautiful walled city of Avignon - a UNESCO World Heritage Site - the medieval city of Popes - the biggest gothic palace in the world and the legendary bridge made famous by the song known to every child 'Sur le Pont, d'Avignon'
• St Remy de Provence and the impressive Greco-Roman archaeological site of Glanum, and the beautiful retreat where Van Gogh spent a prolific year inspired by the luminosity of the light in this region
• The Camargue - calm and mysterious - try to take a Land Rover safari or a boat trip through the lagoons and waterways
• Aigues-Mortes, a beautifully preserved town completely enclosed by ramparts. The French kingdom's first Mediterranean port and the departure point for the Orient and the Crusades
• St. Maries de la Mer - like Mediterranean seaside resorts were 70 years ago - quiet and gentle with unspoilt and uncrowded beaches
• 11th century Les Baux de Provence dominating the Provence landscape
• The Roman centre of Arles described by Constantine as 'the little Rome in Gaul' and once the Roman capital for all of Spain, France and Britain. The great obelisk, the theatre, the amphitheatre arena and the Cloisters of St Trophime are not to be missed
• Nimes with its impressive Roman arena. The beautiful Roman 'Jardin Des Fontaines' which it has been said inspired the gardens at Versailles, and the 'Maison Carreé' much like the Parthenon in Athens
• Pont du Gard-a World Heritage Site, the incredible triple height bridge built by the Romans, one of the finest and most grand pieces of architecture antiquity has bequeathed to us. The aqueduct level delivered pure water to the Roman baths and fountains at Nimes for over 200 years
• Uzés, a delightfully restored medieval town, the seat of the Dukes of Uzés (the first Dukes of France ) for over a thousand years with its lovely cathedral with its tall tower unique in France and similar to the Leaning Tower of Pisa
• Aix en Provence, a city of art and culture, home of Cezanne and the city of a hundred fountains
• The Luberon - Gordes, Menerbes, Bonnieux and Roussillon
• Marseille with its picturesque old port and beautiful church high up on the hill overlooking the city (go up on the little 'street train touristique'), the Mediterranean, and the fortress island , Isle d'If - home of Alexander Dumas' Count of Monte Cristo
• Montpelier, elegant and classical, rather like a Paris of the South
• Orange, the great Imperial Roman theatre - yet another UNESCO World Heritage site
