Walking tour in Arles by d'Anaïs et Pedro

Arles, a magnificent town with not only an exceptional ancient heritage but much more to discover. This corner of paradise in our beautiful Provence region combines boutiques, lovely terraces for refreshments, museums and lots more hidden treasures! You only have to look up as you wander through the town to observe its unusual architecture; incidentally all its monuments were listed by the UNESCO World Heritage committee in 1981.

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.
