Marseille, fish and other delights

It's worth taking the time to explore Marseille if you want to get to know the local flavours and authentic products that have put the city on the foodie map. For instance, you'll get to visit the traditional Four des Navettes bakery where they make small boat-shaped biscuits, 'navettes', a local speciality. At the Old Port, wander around the stalls at the fish market before finding a table at a restaurant that has signed the 'Bouillabaisse Charter' for a fantastic culinary experience. In the afternoon, stock up on the best products the land has to offer. Bring your gourmet tour of the city to a satisfying finish at Chez AM. Simply delicious!

Aix-en-Provence, cultural city break

Cézanne's studio is your first window into this weekend before you head off to take a tour of the more iconic sites in Aix such as the Pavillon Vendôme and the tapestry museum. There's a wonderful mix of the old and new as you alternate between the Fondation Vasarely, the sumptuous town houses in the Mazarin district (Caumont, Granet, Gallifet) and the peace and calm around the fountain on Place d'Albertas. In between art museums, enjoy a feast for the eyes and the palate at Mickaël Féval, a real treat for the senses!

Dear old stones

Do you love old stone buildings and Provence? For this heritage tour, start your day at Marseille's Roman docks before heading to the modern and interactive Marseille history museum. Today's lunch recommendation is Une Table au Sud in the Old Port. It's very close to the city's archaeological museum, a fantastic way to get to grips with Marseille from today and back to the past. The following day, a morning at the Arles Antique museum will fly by until your lunch at Mas de la Fenière in the shade of mulberry trees. In Saint-Rémy, the ancient town of Glanum will bring your two-day tour to a wonderful conclusion.
