La Cité des Baux de Provence s’ouvre aux personnes à déficience visuelle

Walk - Toute l'année - Free

"Make access to heritage a right and a pleasure for all." The village of les Baux de Provence is the first commune of the Bouches which offers new tools to aid in the tour for people with Visual impairment. The city is also the first "more beautiful Villages of France" to undertake a partnership with the departmental Committee of tourism in order to obtain the 'Tourisme et Handicap' label for this circuit, a strong commitment to the municipality. This project is aimed at poorly sighted people and blind to discover the heritage of the village through a visit audio and sensitive to a thirty hour. It is proposed two types of tour books: one with enlarged characters and one in Braille, which present both the village via a specific course. In order to facilitate the visit of the village plates are attached to the facades of the 16 points of interest cited in the audioguide. This innovation complements the visit of the Museum of the santons, renovated in 2008 and already offers a tour book entirely designed in Braille. These two offers are completely free.

Pays salonais and its chateaux, heritage and wine

Pays Salonais makes a great family day out with plenty of fun and original things to do. After a deliciously simple lunch prepared by the chef at the Table du Roy, follow the road to the ruins of a village destroyed by an earthquake at the turn of the 20th century. In the afternoon, why not head to the zoo? It's the biggest one in the region and runs a programme to protect endangered species. Then make you way to the Marius Fabre Museum to learn all about how genuine Marseille soap is made.

Essential Martigues

Your tour of Martigues is designed for lazy contemplation and new discoveries. It's a quiet town so you might be surprised to see such rich heritage there, from the Annonciade Chapel to Fort Bouc and the Ziem Museum. The 'Venice of Provence' has a strong artistic legacy and you won't fail to be enchanted by the legendary 'Miroir aux Oiseaux', the place that gave so much inspiration to great masters. All rounded off with a gourmet meal on the canal side, what more could you want?

Marseille, cultural city break – outside the city

This cultural tour around the streets of Marseille will give you the opportunity to admire the city's rich modern and contemporary art collections and steer you towards the roads less travelled. Begin with the Cantini Museum moments from the city's main shopping streets. Then follow the Corniche roadway to Borély's decorative arts museum. After stopping for lunch, leave the museum grounds in the direction of the MAC to see some 800 contemporary artworks. Next, make your way to the 'Maison du Fada', a local name for the 'Radiant City' imagined by the architect Le Corbusier and visit the MAMO on its roof. Finish at the Palais Longchamp.
