For this weekend tour inspired by contemporary art, start with a visit to the MAC, Marseille's museum of contemporary art. Next, go and soak up the unique atmosphere at the Friche Belle de Mai cultural complex. For lunch, fresh and creative cuisine awaits you at the Grandes Tables de la Friche. Then it's onwards to the FRAC before a visit to the library archives. On day two, make your way to Aix-en-Provence where exploring the Fondation Vasarely will take up most of your morning. At midday, your appetite will be pleasingly sated at La Pioline before you venture off to Arles to visit the Fondation Van Gogh, a gem of an arts institution.
In a day, capture the essence of Cassis by taking a guided tour around the Provençal fishing village and visiting its museum. Potter around the boutiques and craft shops in the centre before finding a table on a terrace overlooking the sea. Cassis is especially proud of Calanques National Park, which you can explore on foot or by boat. Conclude your visit by meeting one or two Cassis wine producers. Less than an hour from the Marseille terminal, Cassis is also an essential destination for cruise tourists.
A free afternoon is all you need to discover the very best of Istres. After a delicious lunch at La Table de Sébastien, potter about Istres' historic and typically Provençal old town. A visit to Saint-Sulpice Chapel and the Centre d'Art Contemporain will get you in the artistic mood. While a leisurely stroll around the Jardins de l’Étang is the perfect end to the day.
