Avignon Gourmet Tours

City and Market Tour (July & August)

 

 

Planning to visit Avignon in summer? Join our City and Market Tour for a unique experience!

On this 3h tour, I will share with you some of my city’s history, Provençal traditions and food specialties. This tour combines a walking tour around Avignon’s old pedestrian area, leafy squares and alley ways with a visit to the emblematic ‘Les Halles’ Market.

Our tour will start with a guided walk through the centre of Avignon where we will learn about the city’s rich past. As a local, I like to take you away from the main tourist attractions. On this off the beaten track itinerary, I will also point out good food spots and places of interest.

We will then head to ‘Les Halles’ market to discover the locally grown produce, learn about food traditions and soak up the typical French market atmosphere. After wandering around the different food stalls, we will enjoy a truly Provençal ‘apéritif’ made of local specialties and a glass of regional wine.
