Tour to Provence

«Provence & Lavande»

The endless lavender fields, Azure sea, a bottle of wine, braided with straw, and olive groves, filling the air with their fragrance... You will see this France during the tour to Provence, organized by the company «Pro.Vin.Sel».

Besides a famous romantic athmosphere of southern France, our guided tours to Provence from Saint-Petersburg give the visiters a chance to know the most exciting sites of this historical region – the Côte d'Azur (French Riviera), over which the Alps hang, the Rhone valley and the mystical region of Camargue, famous for the herds of fabilous white horses, pink flamingos and thousand of sandy islands, formed in the lagoon of the same name. 

To enhance your impressions of the standard guided tours to Provence from Moscow, we transform them to the gastronomic tours. That is why you will have a possibility not only to contemplate the charming landscapes of Provence, but also to taste local cheese and wine, as well as to participate in culinary workshops on cooking (and eating) local dishes with authentic French ingredients. More than that, plenty of fruits and fishplates, which are an essencial part of the Mediterranean diet, are waiting for you. The price of this gastronomic tour to Province from Moscow would satisfy even the French tourists, who are known for their ability to enjoy the life at a minimum cost.
