Essential La Ciotat – the cradle of cinema

For your one-day tour of La Ciotat, you can relax on the Grande Plage or the beach at Figuerolles, a popular spot for locals that you can't leave without seeing. Cinema lovers should head to the Eden Théâtre, famous for screening one of the first films produced by the Lumière brothers. The birth of film is also honoured at the Musée Ciotaden, a museum that retraces the town's history and the traditions of Provence. After an excellent lunch at Le Vin 7, potter around the shops at the Old Port. Later, make your way to the Ile Verte and Parc du Mugel for stunning views. Just don't forget your camera!

The calanques of Marseille, Cassis and La Ciotat

Calanques National Park is an essential destination for any trip to Provence. A day is almost not enough to explore this mineral- and vegetation-rich natural asset! The magic begins in Marseille, at the Sormiou calanque (creek) to visit on foot. Next set sail for a tour of other calanques by boat from where you truly get the measure of the huge rocks rising up from the turquoise waters. Then it's onwards to La Ciotat where you can wrap up the day at the charming Petit Mugel creek. En route, you can't fail to be captivated by the soaring cliffs at Cap Canaille. Note: depending on the weather conditions, this site may be closed for walking due to the risk of forest fires. Get instant weather reports using the free Myprovence Balade app.

Arles and Van Gogh

This tour is centred around the ancient city of Arles, founded 2,500 years ago. A busy day ahead awaits during which you'll get to visit seven landmarks where Van Gogh came to find inspiration, including the Langlois Bridge and the Alyscamps. At the Espace Van Gogh, soak up the special atmosphere of the Hôtel-Dieu, a former hospital. The Fondation Van Gogh, meanwhile, will show you the influence the Dutch painter has had on contemporary artists. For lunch look no further than the highly rated A Côté Le Bistro before visiting Montmajour Abbey.
