Members of the Hamilton College Junior Year in France group traveled to Provence on Nov. 13-15. The first stop of the weekend trip was the Roman aqueduct, the Pont du Gard, built between 38 and 52 A.D. Guided by Hamilton Junior Year in France art professor Laurent Lecomte, the students also visited the amphitheater, stadium and baths in Arles, the picturesque town known as well as the setting for a number of Van Gogh’s paintings.

Lunch was found along the celebrated 2 kilometer-long market on Saturday morning, after which the group headed further south to the coastal region of the Camargue for a two-hour horseback ride in the national park known particularly for its bulls, pink flamingos, and the white Camargue horse. Sunday morning the group traveled through the rugged Alpilles region of Provence to the final destination of Avignon and a visit of the Palace of the Popes.
