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!

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.

The leading lights in architecture

For your architecture-themed day, this tour will show you buildings and works designed by leading lights including Jean Nouvel, Franck Gehry, Rudy Ricciotti, Stefano Boeri, Le Corbusier, Kengo Kuma, Pouillon, Vasarely, Tadao Endo and others. It will take you to the MuCEM and its amazing footbridge before you get to visit the Villa Méditerranée that is half suspended over the Mediterranean Sea. When lunchtime arrives, we suggest you head to Le Ventre de l’Architecte (literally 'the architect's belly'!) in the Cité Radieuse designed by the great Le Corbusier. The FRAC and its fascinating façade is the next stop on the tour. The Regards de Provence Museum is an example of a very successful restoration while the luminescent modular components which make up the Fondation Vasarely are simply mesmerising. Lastly, conclude your tour at Château La Coste, where architecture meets wine.
