Essential Aix-en-Provence

What can you do in a day in Aix-en-Provence? The answer is in this tour which combines history and Provençal art de vivre. A good place to start is the town's farmers market which sells nothing but fresh produce. Follow this with a tour of the charming old town with its atlantes and decorative wrought-iron before wandering along Cours Mirabeau and its fountains. After stopping for lunch at Mickael Féval's gourmet restaurant, anyone who loves art and architecture should head to the Mazarin district for its sumptuous mansions and the Granet Museum. After that, you'll be ready to escape to the peace and calm around Mount Sainte-Victoire. Let's go!Cruise lovers absolutely cannot miss this essential landmark just 30 minutes from Marseille!

Arles by Ma cigale est fantastique

Ancient Arles, Roman Arles, Hail Ceasar! The entire town is an open air museum! Arles, Capital of the Camargue region, is a captivating town. It possesses an extraordinary wealth of cultural and archaeological heritage, if we add to this the extraordinary handicraft and designer shops, a day would never be enough to see it all. I will, however, try to give you a glimpse of our beautiful town, so follow me!

Arles, cultural city break ancient and modern

Arles is an oasis of antiquity with its archaeology museum, Roman amphitheatre and the long-condemned ancient cryptoporticus. You'll travel back to the Middle Ages with a visit to the Church of St. Trophime and Montmajour Abbey that affords fantastic views all around. At the Fondation Van Gogh, learn about the painter's work and his influence on the art world, while the Réattu gives you an insight into 19th and 20th century art history. Don't forget to stop for lunch (we recommend J.L Rabanel) and follow that with more culture at the Actes Sud centre.
