GR2013 : De Martigues à la gare de Croix Sainte

Walk - Toute l'année

Depuis la rive de la mer de Berre, au premier abord vous regarderez les raffineries de Berre et de la Mède de chaque côté mais entre les deux vous apercevrez le massif de l'Etoile et de la Sainte Victoire. Vous vous éloignerez ensuite de la ville par une ligne de crête qui vous offrira une vue sur Martigues. Au fur et à mesure, un paysage industriel se dessinera autour de vous.

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.

Essential Martigues

Your tour of Martigues is designed for lazy contemplation and new discoveries. It's a quiet town so you might be surprised to see such rich heritage there, from the Annonciade Chapel to Fort Bouc and the Ziem Museum. The 'Venice of Provence' has a strong artistic legacy and you won't fail to be enchanted by the legendary 'Miroir aux Oiseaux', the place that gave so much inspiration to great masters. All rounded off with a gourmet meal on the canal side, what more could you want?

Between sea and lakes, a leisurely tour of the Côte Bleue

Explore the typical towns and villages along the 'Blue Coast' amidst lakes and the Mediterranean Sea at your own pace. First Istres with its beaches bordering the biggest inland sea in Europe. Then Martigues with its pretty canals, bridges and quays which have inspired painters for hundreds of years. And lastly Carry-le-Rouet, the pearl of the Côte Bleue, its coastline awash with creeks, beaches and hillside capes.
