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!

Essential Saint Rémy - Provençal charm

It's worth devoting an entire day to Saint-Rémy to fully immerse yourself in the tastes and culture of Provence: from wine (Château Romanin) and olive oil (Moulin du Calanquet) to the region's art and history (Saint-Paul de Mausole Monastery and Glanum). In the heart of the Alpilles, the town, put on the map for being an important source of inspiration to Vincent Van Gogh, is replete with treasures. Lovers of old buildings will adore the town centre and ancient ruins. And foodies will be in their element at Les Terrasses de l’Image that serves original, local fare.

Arts and craftsmanship in Provence

To travel around Provence is a chance to visit extraordinary sites, discover new cities and explore the countryside. But it is also an opportunity to meet passionate craftspeople and have unique experiences, like making your own calisson sweets, delving into the secrets of how soap is produced in Marseille or admiring the work of 'santonniers', makers of traditional figurines. For a sightseeing holiday with a difference, look no further than vibrant and authentic Provence!
