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

Walk - Dates and program to be confirmed - 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.

Provence in a day

Less than 30 kilometres from the port of Marseille, Provence is a rich tapestry of stunning scenery and traditional art de vivre. Before continuing on your cruise, take a day to explore the many ingredients that make up the eternal Provence through three iconic towns: Aubagne, Aix-en-Provence and Les Baux-de-Provence. You'll get to see the variety of Provençal architecture condensed into a day, taste sweet and savoury local specialities and admire breath-taking landscapes the colour of Bibemus stone.

Miramas - Culture, sport & shopping

The village of Miramas is tucked away in the very heart of Provence, between the Alpilles and Camargue. Set overlooking 'Etang de Berre' lake and offering sweeping, 360° views over Provence, home to a typical and authentic historic quarter, a haven for golfers, discount brand-name shoppers and strollers, Miramas is the perfect place for a day out in Provence, off the beaten track.

3 trips in 1, marseille, provence, camargue

Before or after your cruise, make the most of your departure from (or arrival into) Marseille to explore the region over a couple of days. Marseille will show you its many faces, its sea, its ancient heritage and its new museums like the MuCEM. Aix-en-Provence, Aubagne and Les Baux-de-Provence will introduce you to the heart and soul of Provence though its old stone houses, vineyards and olive groves. Last but by no means least, Arles and Camargue will whisk you to a dramatic change of scenery just a few kilometres from Marseille's cruise terminal. Marseille, Provence and Camargue, the promise of three trips in one!
