Essential Aix-en-Provence

What can you do in a day in Aix-en-Provence? The answer is in this tour which combines history and Provençal art de vivre. A good place to start is the town's farmers market which sells nothing but fresh produce. Follow this with a tour of the charming old town with its atlantes and decorative wrought-iron before wandering along Cours Mirabeau and its fountains. After stopping for lunch at Mickael Féval's gourmet restaurant, anyone who loves art and architecture should head to the Mazarin district for its sumptuous mansions and the Granet Museum. After that, you'll be ready to escape to the peace and calm around Mount Sainte-Victoire. Let's go!Cruise lovers absolutely cannot miss this essential landmark just 30 minutes from Marseille!

Arles and Van Gogh

This tour is centred around the ancient city of Arles, founded 2,500 years ago. A busy day ahead awaits during which you'll get to visit seven landmarks where Van Gogh came to find inspiration, including the Langlois Bridge and the Alyscamps. At the Espace Van Gogh, soak up the special atmosphere of the Hôtel-Dieu, a former hospital. The Fondation Van Gogh, meanwhile, will show you the influence the Dutch painter has had on contemporary artists. For lunch look no further than the highly rated A Côté Le Bistro before visiting Montmajour Abbey.

Tarascon Fontvieille, by Ma Cigale est fantastique

From Fontvieille to Tarascon, discover the Provencal countryside and traditions between Arles and the Alpilles National Park.We start this itinerary with the oil mill trail, searching for liquid gold: a pure PDO fruit juice from the marvellous Vallée des Baux. We will continue our trip with a taste of Provencal fabrics, tracing a route that is embellished with Provencal flavours and fragrances. To finish, we will attempt to force the fearsome Tarasque out of hiding.
