  • Explore Cassis, known as the little St. Tropez
  • Take a mini-cruise in the Calanques National Park (not included)
Full description
Begin your 5-hour tour with a guided walking tour of the historic center of Aix en Provence. Explore its narrow streets and markets, the town hall square, fountains and cathedral.

Taste some local delicacies and take a walk with your guide in the steps of Cezanne, one of the area’s most celebrated artists. Discover his college, the café where he used to meet the writers Cocteau and Cendrars and other famous 19th-century artists.

Next is a drive to Cassis, a town known as the little Saint Tropez, with its small and charming harbor. Cassis is famous for its white wines and is home to the most ancient winery in Provence.

You'll have the opportunity to admire the famous Calanques of Cassis, which are on UNESCO’s World Heritage list for their white cliffs and turquoise waters.

There will be some free time for you to walk around the village, relax on the small sandy beach or hop on a motor boat for a 45-minute mini-cruise along the main creeks of the Calanques Natural Park (not included). 

To finish off this special tour, you’ll drive along the top of the Cape Canaille, the highest sea cliff in Europe, for panoramic views of the village, the calanques and the natural park.
