Visite guidée " Un surprenant patrimoine "

History - Sciences - Technology - Du 1er janvier au 31 décembre

Jouques, un village singulier, une histoire particulière et dense liée aux personnages hauts en couleur qui l'ont façonné à travers les siècles.

Le parcours des visites commentées retracent ce passé. Au fil des rues vous découvrez un patrimoine architectural ou se côtoient hôtels particuliers, édifices religieux et bâti rural.

A Jouques, le murmure des eaux rythment la vie du village. Si la fontaine du Portail est créée en 1674, c'est le projet Vallon, en 1774 qui transforme l'ancien chemin du Barri en promenade.

Sa configuration géographique, à l'écart des axes routiers lui a permis de sauvegarder un cadre de vie exceptionnel.

Essential Aubagne – a city built from clay

Aubagne is your destination for this tour. During the course of the day, you'll get to meet the crafts men and women who transform the local clay into iconic objects. Indeed, Aubagne is renowned for its santons (figurines) and pottery. After a lunch at Le 3 Farfalle, take a tour of the potters and 'santonniers', makers of the region's famous figurines. Aubagne's charming old town is awash with heritage (the clock tower) and Art Deco features. If you're in the museum mood, you have a couple to choose from: Cité de l’Art Santonnier dedicated to figurines and the Foreign Legion Museum. Just 30 minutes from the cruise terminal.

Pays salonais and its chateaux, heritage and wine

Pays Salonais makes a great family day out with plenty of fun and original things to do. After a deliciously simple lunch prepared by the chef at the Table du Roy, follow the road to the ruins of a village destroyed by an earthquake at the turn of the 20th century. In the afternoon, why not head to the zoo? It's the biggest one in the region and runs a programme to protect endangered species. Then make you way to the Marius Fabre Museum to learn all about how genuine Marseille soap is made.

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. When you need a breather, enjoy a stroll around Place d'Albertas and its fountain and the area around Aix Cathedral. When you're feeling hungry, we have an excellent and inexpensive recommendation for you.
