Aix's museums and art centres

No cultural tour of Aix-en-Provence would be complete without a visit to the Granet Museum in the Mazarin district. A little further along, step through the doors of the Hôtel de Gallifet to spot fresh talents on the contemporary art scene. In between art museums, enjoy a feast for the eyes and the palate at Mickaël Féval, a real treat for the senses! Your lunch break over, mix the old and the new by visiting the Caumont Arts Centre followed by the Fondation Vasarely.

Cassis by Ma Cigale est fantastique

Ah! Cassis! Who has never heard of this seaside town so full of charm! Admittedly Cassis is a key tourist attraction but above all it’s a picturesque village filled with the fragrances of Provence. Whether you visit in summer or winter, you always feel as though you are on holiday. It is no wonder that numerous celebrities have decided to come and live here, Cassis is a real jewel. I am going to take you on a walk that is colourful, fragranced and that has, perhaps, a gourmet treat or two!

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.
