Essential Aubagne – a city built from clay

Aubagne is your destination for this tour. During the course of the day, you'll get to meet the crafts men and women who transform the local clay into iconic objects. Indeed, Aubagne is renowned for its santons (figurines) and pottery. After a lunch at Le 3 Farfalle, take a tour of the potters and 'santonniers', makers of the region's famous figurines. Aubagne's charming old town is awash with heritage (the clock tower) and Art Deco features. If you're in the museum mood, you have a couple to choose from: Cité de l’Art Santonnier dedicated to figurines and the Foreign Legion Museum. Just 30 minutes from the cruise terminal.

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.

In the Alpilles, Les Baux, Saint-Rémy and more

A day suffices to see the main sites in the Alpilles. Don't miss the ancient town of Glanum with its Roman ruins and Saint-Sixte Chapel. The Carrières de Lumières is worth a visit for its original and captivating audiovisual displays. Then step foot in the legendary Château des Baux and find a table at La Reine Jeanne to enjoy refined dishes made with fresh, local produce. Your tour ends at the oil mills, vital links in the production chain for AOP Baux-de-Provence olive oil.
