GR2013 : De Grans à Salon de Provence

Walk - Toute l'année

A la sortie du village de Grans, il est conseillé de faire un détour par la splendide ferme de la Tour avec son allée de Platanes pour ensuite se retrouver dans la campagne Salonaise. Les champs en bocage consacrés au foin AOC et les arbres fruitiers se succèdent jusqu'à Salon. L'entrée de Salon de Provence réserve quelques surprises avec deux sites de production du Savon de Marseille ainsi que ses villas Belle Epoque de la bourgeoisie de Salon.

Dear old stones

Do you love old stone buildings and Provence? For this heritage tour, start your day at Marseille's Roman docks before heading to the modern and interactive Marseille history museum. Today's lunch recommendation is Une Table au Sud in the Old Port. It's very close to the city's archaeological museum, a fantastic way to get to grips with Marseille from today and back to the past. The following day, a morning at the Arles Antique museum will fly by until your lunch at Mas de la Fenière in the shade of mulberry trees. In Saint-Rémy, the ancient town of Glanum will bring your two-day tour to a wonderful conclusion.

Aix-en-Provence, by Ma Cigale est fantastique

The historic district of this Town of Art sets our cultural and living heritage to music. I am taking you on a journey through time. This is the perfect moment to discover some of the iconic squares and monuments in the town, to relax on a terrace, to fill your shopping basket at the Provencal market, to stock up on local delicacies and shop in some Made in Provence designer boutiques.

Contemporary art

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.
