AIX EN PROVENCE, CASSIS AND MARSEILLE
From Provence-Day-Trips , You will be starting your tour with a visit to Aix-en-Provence. A city whereby traditions, culture and nature entwine. An imposing Mount St Victoire standing proudly at 1,011 m is an inspiration to Paul Cézanne; a native of Aix-en-Provence. Explore the town with its daily market at the squares, taste the local speciality ‘Calisson‘ and admire the tens of fountains sprouting everywhere in the « City of a Thousand Fountains »
The winding Gineste and the Crests roads lead you to the majestic Cap Canaille, the highest sea cliffs in Europe. From this point, you will appreciate the spectacular view of the Gulf of Cassis and the Calanques. Cassis is a small charming fishing village which offers the visitors a reception of true provençal authenticity. Board on a 45-minute cruise (ticket included) to discover 3 Calanques, the magnificent white limestone cliffs rising vertically from the sea.
Welcome to the 2nd largest city in France. Sit back and enjoy a panoramic tour of this Phocean city. At the top of the Gard Hill at 154m, is the famous Notre Dame de la Garde or ‘La Bonne Mère’. From here, you will enjoy a bird’s eye view of the city centre of Marseille. You can spot the Frioul Islands and If Castle (made famous by Alexandra Dumas’s Count of Monte Cristo) off the coast. Drive along the Corniche Road, admire the luxury villas built in the 19th century by the wealthy merchants and bourgeois and the promenade. Glimpse of the 11th century St. Victor Abbey.
