Christmas in Provence is full of traditional celebrations, infused with biblical resonance, charmingly intertwined with local traditions, as exemplified by the Provençal crèche, which is populated by santons (little saints) representing not only the Magi, shepherds and angels but also butchers, bakers, farmers, fishermen, milkmaids, and dozens of other denizens of an idealized 19th-century Provençal village.
After your included guided tour of Arles, you will get to experience this Provencal traditional craft at the International Fair of Santons which takes place every year in the city.
The rest of the day is yours to spend at leisure, perhaps exploring Arles Roman treasures and Christmas markets, or simply resting on board your comfortable Star-Ship.
