Provence, France

The most amazing excursion during the Amawaterways river cruise from Lyon to Avignon was to a limestone quarry in Provence which has been repurposed into an immersive art experience called CARRIÈRES DE LUMIÈRES.

When we stepped inside the quarry, we entered Venice and were immersed in images of art and architecture. Haunting music enhanced the experience, and I was mesmerized.

My photos cannot capture the magnificence of this exhibit, so I encourage you to visit the site–and visit the place.

From there, we went to Les Baux-de-Provence, a 12th century village on top of a mountain.
