Marseille Shore Excursion: Private Tour of Aix-en-Provence and Cassis

    What to Expect
    Your 8-hour private tour of Provence begins with coach pickup from your cruise terminal in Marseille. In the morning, meet your guide and relax for the scenic 45-minute ride to Aix-en-Provence – Marseille’s laid-back, artsy neighbor to the north.

    Enjoy a guided walk along Cours Mirabeau, Aix’s chic, tree-lined boulevard dotted with rich architecture and charming cafés. See opulent 17th- and 18th-century mansions, gurgling fountains and public squares as you make your way to Vieil Aix (Old Town). Explore the area’s warren of narrow lanes, and pop into charming boutiques and craft shops to pick up a unique souvenir. Afterwards, break to tour independently and to get your own lunch at one of the quirky local eateries. Before lunch, you may enjoy an optional visit to the Atelier Paul Cézanne (own expense). Learn about this Post-Impressionist painter and native-son of Aix, view authentic artifacts and see the studio where the Cézanne created pieces like Les Grandes Baigneuses. 

    Afterwards, hop back on your coach for the short ride to Cassis, a delightful Provençal fishing village and historic Roman maritime port. On the way, stop at Cape Canaille, situated on one of France’s highest sea headlands, where can admire magnificent views of the Mediterranean and the Gulf of Cassis. In town, you are free to explore at your leisure. Wander through the limestone-paved streets and the lovely harbor, sample some local wine or take a 45-minute sightseeing cruise (own expense) to see the region’s three famous calanques, striking limestone rock formations that distinguish this stretch of the Mediterranean.

    Your private tour ends with a relaxing drive back to your terminal in Marseille. You’ll arrive back by late afternoon.
