Next drive deep into the beautiful Loup Gorge for a stop at the Florian Candy Factory. You'll enjoy a tour of the factory and learn how the areas flowers are also used to make delicious candies and jams. You'd be surprised how good rose flavored jelly or jasmine flavored candies can be as you try the many free samples.

A stop in one of the small villages of the Loup Region is included so you can have free time to enjoy lunch on your own.

Later today you stop at a local oil mill, Moulin d'Opio, which has been producing Olive Oil since 1848. You will learn how olives are not only a delicious snack but once pressed, become a healthy dipping oil. Included in the visit are samples of local olive oil and tapenade with bread.
