3 trips in 1, marseille, provence, camargue

Before or after your cruise, make the most of your departure from (or arrival into) Marseille to explore the region over a couple of days. Marseille will show you its many faces, its sea, its ancient heritage and its new museums like the MuCEM. Aix-en-Provence, Aubagne and Les Baux-de-Provence will introduce you to the heart and soul of Provence though its old stone houses, vineyards and olive groves. Last but by no means least, Arles and Camargue will whisk you to a dramatic change of scenery just a few kilometres from Marseille's cruise terminal. Marseille, Provence and Camargue, the promise of three trips in one!

Aix-en-Provence, cultural city break

Cézanne's studio is your first window into this weekend before you head off to take a tour of the more iconic sites in Aix such as the Pavillon Vendôme and the tapestry museum. There's a wonderful mix of the old and new as you alternate between the Fondation Vasarely, the sumptuous town houses in the Mazarin district (Caumont, Granet, Gallifet) and the peace and calm around the fountain on Place d'Albertas. In between art museums, enjoy a feast for the eyes and the palate at Mickaël Féval, a real treat for the senses!

Arts and craftsmanship in Provence

To travel around Provence is a chance to visit extraordinary sites, discover new cities and explore the countryside. But it is also an opportunity to meet passionate craftspeople and have unique experiences, like making your own calisson sweets, delving into the secrets of how soap is produced in Marseille or admiring the work of 'santonniers', makers of traditional figurines. For a sightseeing holiday with a difference, look no further than vibrant and authentic Provence!
