Avignon, Arles & Tarascon

Hello :) Even though it has been four months since arriving back, I am going to continue these travel posts! Ok, so if you wanted to play catch up, the last post was about Remoulins & Pont Du Gard, in the south of France. While staying in Remoulins we also took day trips to Avignon, Arles and Tarascon ...


It was festival season in Avignon, meaning buskers, music, performances, posters, plays and dancing ...everywhere! Such a wonderful atmosphere and great to be surrounded by so many dancers and actors promoting their plays ...

A tea shop 

The famous medieval bridge, "Sur le Pont d'Avignon..."

Delicious crepes ... I had a banana and nutella one (or two!)


We spent the morning in Arles one day, a small city near Avignon. I couldn't stop walking around the old streets and taking photos of all the houses ... & couldn't really believe people actually lived there !!

The amazing Roman amphitheatre 


While staying at Remoulins, we also took a day trip to Tarascon, and visited my friend's Aunt and her husband who live there.  At their house we had an impressive lunch ...melon & ham, a mozzarella, tomato and basil salad, lots of beautiful cheese with the most amazing bread from an organic bakery, and strawberries and chocolate mousse to end ... all with a few glasses of wine. 

They also gave us a tour around Tarascon, where we learnt a lot of the interesting history.

The town centre

We visited the castle ...seriously impressive !! 

Oh man, looking back at these photos makes me want to go back overseas! It's going to be difficult staying in Sydney for most of my break.
