Marseille and the coast in a day

When you disembark for your stop in Marseille, you probably want to see the city centre and the coast? This itinerary takes you on a tour of essential Marseille in a day. You could spend the morning in the MuCEM, a museum dedicated to the history of Marseille since it was founded, set in a brand-new, stylish building. Before lunch, go for a stroll around the old Panier district en route to the Café des Épices. The afternoon will fly by as you visit the calanque in Port-Miou and go shopping in Cassis.

Culture in the heart of Aix-en-Provence

Your day of Aixois culture kicks off with a flourish at Cézanne's studio before you head off to see some of Aix's most iconic sites such as the Pavillon Vendôme and the tapestry museum.

Lights, Camera, Action! Provence and the Movies

The history of cinema in Provence dates back many years. And similarly to the region's artistic hall of fame, it was inspired by light...

As you may know, the very first moving picture was screened by the Lumière brothers ('Lumière' meaning 'light') on September 21st, 1895 in La Ciotat.
