Once of the best regions in France to explore is Provence. A region with Roman ruins, a 2000 year old aqueduct, medieval villages, and inspiration for great impressionist painters like Van Gogh. The warmth of the people in the region, the vibrant colors and great local wines provide the right formula for a great vacation.
