Guided tour in French: Your wine experience in Avignon !
During the "Estivales des Côtes du Rhône", every Thursday in June , Avignon Tourism and « Les Compagnons des Côtes du Rhône » invite you to share a real experience.
Your afternoon begins in the Petit Palais Museum, where your local english speaking guide Magali, with the help of four selected paintings, will explain the importance of the symbolism of wine in Christianity.
You will leave the museum after 45 minutes and go to the famous Rocher des Doms garden, part of Unesco World Heritage.
