Marseille, cultural city break – outside the city
This cultural tour around the streets of Marseille will give you the opportunity to admire the city's rich modern and contemporary art collections and steer you towards the roads less travelled. Begin with the Cantini Museum moments from the city's main shopping streets. Then follow the Corniche roadway to Borély's decorative arts museum. After stopping for lunch, leave the museum grounds in the direction of the MAC to see some 800 contemporary artworks. Next, make your way to the 'Maison du Fada', a local name for the 'Radiant City' imagined by the architect Le Corbusier and visit the MAMO on its roof. Finish at the Palais Longchamp.
Marseille le Panier by Les Marseillaises
It may be the oldest district in Marseille but le Panier has lost none of its charm. In fact, the area has seen a remarkable rebound since the arrival of the MuCEM and the renovation of la Joliette, without mentioning the historical monuments alongside the artists’ workshops hidden in the narrow streets.
The seven wonders of the Bouches-du-Rhône
This tour showcases seven wonders around the Bouches-du-Rhône, easily covered in just half a day if you're riding in a helicopter or – and this is our personal recommendation – staggered over several days during your next trip to Provence! Starting in the north of the department, make your way slowly but surely down to Marseille. The first wonder is Les Baux-de-Provence, one of the prettiest villages in France. Then travel back in time at the Arles Amphitheatre before you are completely wowed by the Camargue countryside. Like Cézanne, you'll be enchanted by the sight of Mount Saint-Victoire before you head for a stroll along Cours Mirabeau, the main boulevard in the centre of Aix-en-Provence. End with a flourish in Marseille where its Old Port and calanques, those stunning natural creeks, are protected world heritage sites.
Celebrated at Candlemas, this traditional Provencal biscuit is also a popular sweet treat all year round
