The unmissable sights and things to enjoy in Provence: Vaison la Romaine's many Roman remains; Avignon with the Pope's Palace and Pont d’Avignon; Orange (Roman Theatre and Triumphal Arch);  l'Isle sur la Sorgue's excellent second-hand market; the Mont Ventoux which dominates the region and is used in the tour de France; Carpentras – home of the traditional local sweet 'berlingot' and a synagogue; the Dentelles de Montmirail (lovely hilly walking country); the Luberon valley with its ochre quarries; Gordes and Sénanque Abbey; la Fontaine de Vaucluse and Les Baux de Provence;
