You start in Vaison-la-Romaine, a delightful town snuggled in green hills in the heart of Provence.

Vaison lies about 650 km southeast of Paris, due east of Orange.

Access is via either Orange or Avignon. Both can be reached via the TGV (high-speed rail network of France), and are only a three- to four-hour journey from Paris.

These towns can also be reached by air or from other gateway cities such as Lyon or Nice. Transfer to Vaison is via public or private transportation.

We’ll provide you with directions.
