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.
Alpilles on the wine route
If you're visiting the Alpilles, then take advantage of the opportunity to travel the Provençal wine route. Go out to meet passionate winegrowers and their exceptional, often organic, wines. You'll get to try artisanal jams in Maussane before venturing onwards to Mas de Gourgonnier in the Baux-de-Provence appellation. Next, head to Domaine de Vallongue and its broken stones (IGP Alpilles). Le Lézard Gourmand will make a refreshing change for lunch before an afternoon spent at Domaine Valdition with its gourmet on-site shop.
The Côte Bleue
Between Calanques National Park and Camargue Regional Nature Park, the 'Blue Coast' promises a bracing breath of fresh air! By the sea, there is something for every taste, from the beautiful Sainte-Croix beach in Martigues to the quaint little beach at Fernandel calanque in Carry-le-Rouet. Water sports enthusiasts will be in their element in Sausset-lès-Pins where they can choose between learning to dive and having a go at stand-up paddleboarding. Of course, foodies are catered for too at Le Madrigal and Le Mange-Tout. Ready? Steady... Go!
When a tourist comes to Marseille, one of the first things they have to eat is the local speciality: Pizza!
The Feria, more than just a bull fiesta!
This sport (yes, Pétanque is a sport, but we'll talk about that later) is an intrinsic part of life in Marseille and has been from generation to generation!
Every quarter has its own boules court and/or boules association, including, of course, a watering hole...
