See our Small Group programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

Book Discussion. I highly recommend Edwin Mullins' books on the Popes of Avignon and Roman Provence. Also, Iain Pears' "Dream of Scipio". There are some others I would NOT recommend. I'm going on the April 10 trip.

Erin Hartnett Dec 26, 2014 at 10:15 AM

Is anyone going to Provenance March 20?
Cheri Affeldt Jan 01, 2015 at 01:58 PM

My sister and I are considering March 20 but are worried about the weather at that time?

We are going on the Provence trip this coming friday, Sept. 5, and wonder who else is signed up? We are Harry and Leslie Oster from White Plains, NY-- a retired banker and retired English teacher.

Hi- my wife and I are going on the trip May 2. We noticed that May 8 in Aix appears to be a relatively free day. We looked into organized tours going to Nice, Monaco but have found they don't go on Thursday. Anyone interested in sharing a private driver for the day. We also looked at a half day trip to cassis.

Shirley Mitchell Mar 14, 2014 at 12:28 AM

Am excited about the Provence trip. Will be overnight in Frankfurt and then arriving in Marseille the morning of Sept 5. Not sure if I meet the group there. I am looking for a roommate. Any takers?

Beverly Rawlings Mar 11, 2014 at 10:37 AM

Hi. I am looking for a roommate for the Provence trip from May 30th to June 11th.
I am an active 76 year old woman with international travel experience and love art and music. If interested, please let me know. Thanks, Beverly
Beverly Smith Apr 24, 2014 at 10:29 AM

Hello Beverly, My name is also Beverly and I am looking for a roommate for the May 30th Provence trip. Have you found a roommate yet?
Beverly Rawlings Apr 25, 2014 at 08:54 AM

Hi Beverly. No, I haven't found a roommate yet and would be interested. Can you share a few things about yourself? Thanks.
Beverly Smith Apr 25, 2014 at 10:14 AM

I am a career professional in Human Resources and am semi-retired. I love to travel and don't get to do it often enough, and especially love to go to France. I lived in New England all my life. I love to dance and play games. I keep in shape although I have to say that the pounds have been creeping up on me but I guess that's part of the aging process but I'm going to fight it! You know, this is harder than I thought! I feel like I'm writing a very bad essay! I like to get to bed and settle down by 11:00 at the latest so if you're a party person and would come in at 2 or 3, that wouldn't work. I am a very light sleeper so anyone moving around during the night time would be difficult for me. I think that's enough for now - maybe you could share some things about yourself!
