We’ll stop off in Avignon, where we’ll take a stroll around this historic city with our knowledgeable Tour Leader. After, we’ll have the opportunity to visit the Palace of the Popes – one of the most significant medieval buildings in Europe and centre of the Roman Catholic world during the 14th century.
