Travel for approximately 1.5 hours to the breath-taking Pont du Gard, a world famous ancient Roman aqueduct bridge that crosses the shallow Gard River. This amazing feat of engineering used to carry around 44 million gallons of water a day. Built around the year 40 A.D., it features three impressive levels of arcades that are recessed one on top of the other reaching a height of 160 feet. 

Here you will be able to absorb the magnificence of this unique 18th-century structure from a nearby vantage point. You will then drive to nearby Avignon for a walk around this historic town, with cobbled streets and narrow stairs. The town itself is still delightfully contained within its 14th-century walls and features beautifully preserved ramparts and pretty bell towers. Visit the largest Gothic construction in the world known as Palace of the Popes, home to nine Popes during the Great Schism that lasted from 1309 to 1378. A truly magnificent building you will be able to wander through the vast galleries and great halls.

Enjoy some free time to have lunch on your own. Most of Avignon's medieval city streets are closed to vehicle traffic and are lined with boutiques and art galleries, along with craft, jewelry and souvenir shops. Return to Marseille via the highway, traveling through breath-taking countryside, which features vineyards, orchards and cypress trees.
