History in Motion

Vaison-la-Romaine, France
About History in Motion
A unique historical walking tour. Embark upon an epic journey spanning 3000 yrs from pre-Roman times to the French Revolution. By placing Vaison & the Provence of the Popes in their broader historical context we emerge with a fuller appreciation, not only of Vaison’s rich, diverse & chequered past, but also of the origins of our western world, woven from the most useful remnants of that diversity.
