  • Experience a food tasting tour of medieval Aix-en-Provence
  • Discover the natural beauty of Cassis and its famous inlets of the Calanques National Park
  • Explore the main monuments and Old Port of Marseille
Full description
Start your day with a guided walking tour of the historical heart of Aix-en-Provence. Visit Aix Cathedral and soak up the atmosphere of the narrow streets, squares, fountains and private mansions of the medieval city. Taste the foods of the region along the way.

Then, drive to Cassis, famous for its cliffs and sheltered inlets known as "calanques." Considered by many as the "Little Saint Tropez" of Provence, the picturesque settlement is also famous for its seafood restaurants, small port and tiny town center. Relax on the beach, or take a mini-cruise through the natural canyons (not included), often compared to the fjords of Norway for their turquoise waters and white cliffs.

Enjoy some free time at leisure for lunch, and then go on a short hike at the top of Cap Canaille, the highest sea cliff in Europe. Get a panoramic view of the Bay of Cassis and Mediterranean Sea before the journey to Marseille. Upon arrival in Marseille, discover the main monuments of the ancient city, established around 600 BC by colonists coming from Phocaea.

Visit the Basilica of Notre Dame de la Garde and get 360-degree panoramic views. Stroll around the Old Port (Vieux-Port) and go to the 17th-century fortification of Fort Saint-Jean, now part of the new Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilisations (MuCEM).
