Immerse yourself in the magic of Provence-the light prized by Impressionist painters; the lush flora and greenery which made the area the perfume capital of the world; the herbal fragrances which have influenced generations of chefs; the twisty lanes through tranquil villages. Almost every destination is a two-night stop, giving our riders the option to sip espresso, tour perfumeries, and explore art galleries, or to ride suggested day trips—or both. This is the first of our Motorcycle Vacation tours, giving riders more down time for sight seeing, while leaving open the option for even more riding on those days.

Provence is our primary focus, starting in  Nice, once the summer home of European elites along the seaside Promenade. We’ll visit Roman ruins, pamper ourselves with local cuisines and wines, look deep into the Verdon Canyon, stroll Luberon through villages, go vertical in Vercors, let Aix and Avignon charm us....We’ll also ride just west of Provence to the ancient volcanic region of Massif Central.

Provence is everything you could want Europe to be. Join us for joie de vivre on two wheels!
