What You Can Expect

Private Provence Tour: Marseille and Aix en Provence

Stroll the quaint streets of Aix-en-Provence on your private tour

You’ll be picked up from your Avignon hotel in the morning for your full-day trip to Marseille and Aix-en-Provence, two gems of southern France’s Provence region.

Start with a visit to Aix-en-Provence, the former capital of Provence. Aix is most famous for its opulent 17th- and 18th-century mansions that line Cours Mirabeau, the grand boulevard that cuts through the city. Wander down Cours Mirabeau and explore Old Town with your guide.

You’ll also visit Atelier Cézanne, the studio of the famous post-Impressionist painter Paul Cézanne, who was born in Aix-en-Provence. See where Cézanne created his masterpieces, and venture to the foot of Montagne Sainte-Victoire to see the actual landscapes that inspired him.

You’ll then drive south to the colorful Mediterranean coastal city of Marseille. Learn about the fascinating history of this ancient city — the oldest in France, founded by the Greeks 2,600 years ago — as you wander down La Canebière, the historic high street in Old Town. Visit the Abbey of St-Victor and end with a visit to Notre-Dame de la Garde, an iconic basilica looming over the Vieux Port (Old Port).

After your time in Marseille, board the minivan and head back to your hotel.
