Cycling Through Chateauneuf du Pape
This is a fairly easy day - nice and flat as far as Chateauneuf du Pape where we'll taste the renowned local brew at Domaine de la Solitude. This afternoon we pass over the hill where the best vines are grown and follow quiet roads into Orange.
This was originally a retirement town for retired Roman soldiers, and today boasts a truly spectacular Roman Theatre - we'll visit before dinner. We'll also have a look at the huge triumphal arch that dates back to the reign of Augustus. The Theatre and the Arch together are classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
