Walk of the Week: Provence: Walking and Wine

15 Jul , 2015  

Each year on the 14th July, military parades, fireworks, concerts and parties take place across France to celebrate Bastille Day. This national day commemorates the storming of the Bastille, a fortress in Paris, which marked the beginning of the French Revolution in 1789. In honour of le quatorze juillet, our walk of the week is Provence: Walking and Wine.
