The leading lights in architecture

For your architecture-themed day, this tour will show you buildings and works designed by leading lights including Jean Nouvel, Franck Gehry, Rudy Ricciotti, Stefano Boeri, Le Corbusier, Kengo Kuma, Pouillon, Vasarely, Tadao Endo and others. It will take you to the MuCEM and its amazing footbridge before you get to visit the Villa Méditerranée that is half suspended over the Mediterranean Sea. When lunchtime arrives, we suggest you head to Le Ventre de l’Architecte (literally 'the architect's belly'!) in the Cité Radieuse designed by the great Le Corbusier. The FRAC and its fascinating façade is the next stop on the tour. The Regards de Provence Museum is an example of a very successful restoration while the luminescent modular components which make up the Fondation Vasarely are simply mesmerising. Lastly, conclude your tour at Château La Coste, where architecture meets wine.

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!

La Ciotat by Les Marseillaises

With its rocky creeks, the revival of its town centre and its maritime history, La Ciotat is a destination that combines the art of living, a natural landscape and new locations that are overflowing with history. In the town that has can be considered the birthplace of cinema and pétanque, you are sure to find some very good reasons for visiting! We are talking about La Ciotat, this typical Mediterranean town with magnificent beaches and creeks, where the noise of the shipbuilding yards ceased to exist a few years ago. Today, there is not only the coastal scenery to enjoy there is also the renovation of the ancient district of La Ciotat – or the "Coeur de ville" (the heart of the town) as it is lovingly known by the locals. We suggest visiting some of the new shops as well as some of the beaches and creeks.

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!
