What to expect

Discover the highlights and authentic neighborhoods in three great towns located west of the amazing French Riviera and in the hinterland of Provence. Explore the splendid rocky coves called calanques by boat, visit open-air markets, fishing villages, little ports and coastal cliffs and enjoy the great Mediterranean cuisine.

Founded by the Greeks 2600 years ago, Marseille is the oldest city in France. This rebel maritime city is a stunning beauty and a fascinating melting pot of people from all over the world. Enjoy the spectacular 360° view of the city, its coastline and islands from Notre-Dame de la Garde, the highest point in town, and discover the oldest neighborhood in France, le Panier, full of artists, ceramic and figurine workshops. You’ll also visit the Old Port and the fish market and learn the secrets of the famous Bouillabaisse fish soup. Walk along the ramparts of Fort St-Jean and cross the super-modern footbridge to the MuCEM, the Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilizations.

Next, you’ll be taken north to Aix-en-Provence, a cultural and artistic haven permeated by scents wafting from the lively morning markets, and visit St. Sauveur Cathedral and one of Cezanne’s favorite hilltop painting spots. While wandering through the old town, famous for its 17th and 18th-century architecture, fountains and squares, you’ll taste some local specialties such as "calissons", biscuits and nougats.

The last stop will be the picturesque town of Cassis, where you'll enjoy breathtaking views of vineyards, mountains and islands from one of the highest maritime cliffs in Europe, Cap Canaille, and drive along the fantastic Crest Road for more spectacular views. Take a walk around the little port with fishing and tourist boats and choose to end the day with a bang: enjoy a splendid 45-minute boat tour of the rocky inlets (calanques) of Cassis!
