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.

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.
Cassis, the wine route
Discover Cassis as you never have before through the great wine estates that have earned the village such an excellent reputation. First stop, Ferme Blanche (AOC Cassis) and the highly rated Domaine Paternel (organic wines) where you can see the fabulous terroir with its extremely rich soil for yourself. After stopping for a fine dining experience at La Villa Madie, get back onto the wine route to meet other passionate producers. Domaine du Bagnol and Clos Sainte Magdeleine both welcome visitors into their wine cellars.
The seven wonders of the Bouches-du-Rhône
This tour showcases seven wonders around the Bouches-du-Rhône, easily covered in just half a day if you're riding in a helicopter or – and this is our personal recommendation – staggered over several days during your next trip to Provence! Starting in the north of the department, make your way slowly but surely down to Marseille. The first wonder is Les Baux-de-Provence, one of the prettiest villages in France. Then travel back in time at the Arles Amphitheatre before you are completely wowed by the Camargue countryside. Like Cézanne, you'll be enchanted by the sight of Mount Saint-Victoire before you head for a stroll along Cours Mirabeau, the main boulevard in the centre of Aix-en-Provence. End with a flourish in Marseille where its Old Port and calanques, those stunning natural creeks, are protected world heritage sites.

'Savon de Marseille', how to tell the real from the fake
Thanks to the huge success of bands such as IAM and La Fonky Family, Marseille has earned its status as one of France's foremost rap capitals. Hoisted to heritage status in this city known for its gift of the gab, the movement has propelled a new generation of signature names to the front of the scene: the heirs have arrived.
