Martigues and Marigagne by Ma Cigale est Fantastique

The towns of Marignane and Martigues, situated between land and sea, sit proudly on the banks of the étang de Berre. We have all heard of Marignane airport, but we know little about the town itself, which is an interesting place to visit. The town centre is currently being renovated. Martigues, Provence’s answer to Venice, is an island criss-crossed by canals that connect it directly to the sea. Together we will (re)discover the charms of these little-known towns.

Essential Marseille

This tour is designed to help you get to know the capital of Bouches-du-Rhône and European Capital of Culture 2013 inside and out. First, pay a quick visit to the 'Bonne Mère', as the locals familiarly refer to the basilica which watches over the city. Next go and listen to the city's beating heart, the Old Port, and while you're there stop for lunch at Chez Madie. Then head to Panier, the city's old town that is home to a vibrant community today. Afterwards, rest your weary limbs a while in the courtyard of the majestic Vieille Charité cultural centre. Once rested, make your way to the MuCEM, one of the city's cultural landmarks, before taking in the sights of the surrounding calanques.If you love being on the water, then this part of the tour is for you!

The Côte Bleue

Between Calanques National Park and Camargue Regional Nature Park, the 'Blue Coast' promises a bracing breath of fresh air! By the sea, there is something for every taste, from the beautiful Sainte-Croix beach in Martigues to the quaint little beach at Fernandel calanque in Carry-le-Rouet. Water sports enthusiasts will be in their element in Sausset-lès-Pins where they can choose between learning to dive and having a go at stand-up paddleboarding. Of course, foodies are catered for too at Le Madrigal and Le Mange-Tout. Ready? Steady... Go!
