Starting from On demand €
Trip distance: Km ( Miles)
The first stop is at France's largest port and second-largest city. With close links to the Middle East and North Africa, Marseille offers a feast of world cuisines, music and cultural traditions.
The old part of the city is known for its narrow stepped streets, quiet squares and fine 18th century buildings which contrast with the bustle of boulevard Canebière and the Cité Radieuse, Le Corbusier's modern apartment building with the famous roof. The old harbor is renowned for its fish market which sells the catch of the day.
Founded by the Romans in 103 BC, Aix-en-Provence is a center of arts and learning. Aix has been called the "city of a thousand fountains" with several of the most beautiful ones situated on the Cours Mirabeau. This tree-lined avenue, is also filled with beautiful 17th-and 18th-century buildings and numerous bustling cafés, and is a major part of the city’s social life. Not to be missed is Old Town, centered around the Place de l’Hôtel de Ville, perhaps the most charming square in Provence. A colorful flower market takes place there several days aweek. Aix is the birthplace of Paul Cézanne. His Atelier and the Museum of Tapestry are also among the cultural places to visit.
