Itinerary

Meet your driver at the exit of the ship in Marseille cruise terminal.

Drive to Aix en Provence : discover the Cours Mirabeau lined with 17th and 18th century private mansions, where large plane trees give shade on hot summer days.

Visit Place d’Albertas and see the fountain whose basin was made by local students. See the Four Dolphins Fountain, an impressive sculpture created in 1667. Other amazing sights in the vibrant city are the City Hall and the Cathedral Saint Sauveur.

The old town is packed with shops, architectural and religious sites, bustling squares and refreshing fountains. Take a stroll through one of the numerous markets taking place everyday in the center of the city. 

Aix is also the birthplace of the painter Paul Cézanne. Don't miss the opportunity to visit the Cézanne's studio that was built from his own plans and where time seems to stand still (entrance ticket not included). 

Free time for lunch (not included) on your own during the day.

Panoramic tour of the city of Marseille on the way back, including a photo stop at Notre-Dame de la Garde Basilica. From this hill, enjoy a breathtaking view on the Phocaean city, the Frioul islands and If Castle.

Drive on the Corniche Road, a symbol of holiday and outward sign of wealth for merchants and bourgeois from the 19th century who built magnificent houses with many ostentatious splendid features. You will then reach Saint-Victor Abbey (11th century) that guards the entry of the Vieux-Port (Old Port).
