Things to do in Provence

Are you thinking about what to do in Provence? Then let Travel and Leisure guide you to the best activities for an unforgivable time in Provence. Apart from the obvious: enjoying the beautiful landscapes of the Southern France, there are many things to do in Provence.

Would you like to visit the places where history took place? Then visit the Palais des Papes and the famous the Pont d’Avignon, the Roman ruins in the charming village of Saint-Remy-de-Provence or the ancient stone village of Les Baux. Do you like adventure? Then visits to the Gran Canyon du Verdan and the beautiful Medieval town of Moustiers Sainte Marie are outstanding choices.

When thinking about what to do in Provence, it is impossible not to mention the Cezanne tour. An activity that will take you to the places where Cezanne once drank, ate and had fun. Watching a bull fight in the roman Arles, which once hosted gladiators fights is also among the things to do in Provence. If you are a person that enjoy spending time in museums then visit the Musée d'Art Classique de Mougins or the Musée Jean Cocteau Collection Sérverin Wudermen that are among the best museums in Provence.
