ACE GENTLER TOURS
Arles is one of a new series of more gently paced tours, created specially for those who prefer a more laid-back, less physically demanding itinerary while retaining the same high level of academic content. Walking distances are typically shorter, visits are more relaxed, and time is dedicated to the gradual appreciation of, and explorations within, our immediate surroundings. Hotels will usually be situated in central locations to allow for ease of access to major sites as well as local amenities; while group members are regularly encouraged to enjoy each location in their own way and at their own pace.
