Saint Rémy and its painters

Come and spend a delightful half-day in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, a typical Provençal village in the Alpilles. Following in Van Gogh's footsteps, get to know the famous artist more intimately as you stroll around the streets and other locations he used to visit. While he only spent a year here, when he was a self-admitted patient at the Saint-Paul asylum, he left an indelible mark on the town and its history. Make time also to see the magnificent Provençal building that houses the Estrine Museum dedicated to the artist.

Cassis, the wine route

Discover Cassis as you never have before through the great wine estates that have earned the village such an excellent reputation. First stop, Ferme Blanche (AOC Cassis) and the highly rated Domaine Paternel (organic wines) where you can see the fabulous terroir with its extremely rich soil for yourself. After stopping for a fine dining experience at La Villa Madie, get back onto the wine route to meet other passionate producers. Domaine du Bagnol and Clos Sainte Magdeleine both welcome visitors into their wine cellars.

3 trips in 1, marseille, provence, camargue

Before or after your cruise, make the most of your departure from (or arrival into) Marseille to explore the region over a couple of days. Marseille will show you its many faces, its sea, its ancient heritage and its new museums like the MuCEM. Aix-en-Provence, Aubagne and Les Baux-de-Provence will introduce you to the heart and soul of Provence though its old stone houses, vineyards and olive groves. Last but by no means least, Arles and Camargue will whisk you to a dramatic change of scenery just a few kilometres from Marseille's cruise terminal. Marseille, Provence and Camargue, the promise of three trips in one!
