Salon-de-Provence, by So Girly Blog

Salon de Provence is known thanks to Nostradamus and is a typical Provencal town. Provencal architecture, designer clothes boutiques and a nod to Nostradamus, this is all waiting for you when you visit the town centre. Situated at 50 kilometres from Marseille, there are some beautiful cultural and historic discoveries to be made throughout the itinerary and which will allow you discover the town centre.

Essential Marseille

This tour is designed to help you get to know the capital of Bouches-du-Rhône and European Capital of Culture 2013 inside and out. First, pay a quick visit to the 'Bonne Mère', as the locals familiarly refer to the basilica which watches over the city. Next go and listen to the city's beating heart, the Old Port, and while you're there stop for lunch at Chez Madie. Then head to Panier, the city's old town that is home to a vibrant community today. Afterwards, rest your weary limbs a while in the courtyard of the majestic Vieille Charité cultural centre. Once rested, make your way to the MuCEM, one of the city's cultural landmarks, before taking in the sights of the surrounding calanques.If you love being on the water, then this part of the tour is for you!

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!
