Reopening of tourist places in the Alpilles
With the current health crisis and the period of lockdown, all tourist activities in the Alpilles have been brought to a halt. Since the announcement of the relaxing of the lockdown’s rules on 11th May, the structures are gradually reopening their doors. If you are looking for your next activity in the Alpilles during the summer of 2020, here are a few trails of sites and museums ready to welcome you:
The Musée des Alpilles is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 10 am to 6 pm and admission is free for all until 30 August.
For an excursion into antiquity, the archaeological site of Glanum in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence is open every day between 9.45 am and 6 pm.
Please note that the number of visitors to the site is limited, so we advise you to book your ticket at their online ticket office.
To our great pleasure, the Carrières de Lumières (Les Baux-de-Provence) are currently open. Special arrangements for visits are planned: it is advisable to book your entrance tickets online, temperature control at the entrance, groups are not allowed. At the moment, two unique exhibitions are to be seen (and experienced) at the Carrières de Lumières: “Dali, l’énigme sans fin” and “Gaudi, architecte de l’imaginaire”.
With its 300 varieties of bamboos and hundreds of other varieties of plants and grasses, the Bambous en Provence garden will offer you a moment of greenery and freshness. This remarkable garden is open every day from 2pm to 8pm.
