In the Alpilles, Les Baux, Saint-Rémy and more

A day suffices to see the main sites in the Alpilles. Don't miss the ancient town of Glanum with its Roman ruins and Saint-Sixte Chapel. The Carrières de Lumières is worth a visit for its original and captivating audiovisual displays.

Marseille and the coast in a day

When you disembark for your stop in Marseille, you probably want to see the city centre and the coast? This itinerary takes you on a tour of essential Marseille in a day. You could spend the morning in the MuCEM, a museum dedicated to the history of Marseille since it was founded, set in a brand-new, stylish building. Before lunch, go for a stroll around the old Panier district en route to the Café des Épices. The afternoon will fly by as you visit the calanque in Port-Miou and go shopping in Cassis.

Essential Cassis

In a day, capture the essence of Cassis by taking a guided tour around the Provençal fishing village and visiting its museum. Potter around the boutiques and craft shops in the centre before finding a table on a terrace overlooking the sea. Cassis is especially proud of Calanques National Park, which you can explore on foot or by boat. Conclude your visit by meeting one or two Cassis wine producers. Less than an hour from the Marseille terminal, Cassis is also an essential destination for cruise tourists.
