We still have some space available on our Association of Specialized and Cooperative Library Agencies (ASCLA) trip to southern France in October 2013, and some updates to the itinerary as well!

This is the fourth fundraising trip hosted by ASCLA, a division of ALA. Previous adventures include Paris, Ireland and Italy! This adventure is open to the library community; there are no membership requirements in order to participate. Previous travelers have brought spouses, siblings and friends along.

Travelers will arrive in Nice on October 6, then transfer to Les-Baux-de-Provence. From Les Baux, the trip will explore the Luberon Valley, full of vineyards, lavender fields, olive groves and charming towns like L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue and Gordes; Avignon; Arles; Nimes and Pont du Gard. On Oct. 9, we’ll depart for St. Tropez, with evening accommodations in La Croix-Valmer. Day tours include Grimaud and St. Tropez. Then we’ll proceed to Monaco, with a visit to Gassin or Ramatuelle and Saint-Paul-de-Vence along the way. While in Monaco, we’ll make a day trip to visit the Nice Library, Antibes and Cannes. We’ll also tour Monaco, the Prince’s Palace of Monaco, the neo-romanesque cathedral where Princess Grace and Prince Rainier are entombed; and Jardins St. Martin. Download a complete trip itinerary.
