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.
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.
Culture in the heart of Aix-en-Provence
Your day of Aixois culture kicks off with a flourish at Cézanne's studio before you head off to see some of Aix's most iconic sites such as the Pavillon Vendôme and the tapestry museum. When you need a breather, enjoy a stroll around Place d'Albertas and its fountain and the area around Aix Cathedral. When you're feeling hungry, we have an excellent and inexpensive recommendation for you.
The sun's rays are warming you through the pine trees, but you will not know if the summer is here until you hear THE CICADAS!
What will it be - 'Chichis Frégis' or 'Panisses'?! Make your choice at The Estaque quarter of Marseille.
Aix-en-Provence prides in concocting 'Calisson' candies made with a thin candied melon paste and ground almonds topped with royal icing. Yummy
The Feria, more than just a bull fiesta!
