Visit a quaint fishing village followed by a regional capital

Today depart for a full day small group tour from the town of Aix en Provence to Cassis and Marseille. Discover Cassis and the famous Cap Canaille followed by the city of Marseille and its famous vieux port.

Meet your English speaking local guide

Meet your English speaking driver/guide in a centrally located meeting point in Aix en Provence. There, your guide will go over the itinerary and program of the day. Board your premium, comfortable A/C vehicle and begin your tour from Aix en Provence towards the lovely seaside village of Cassis.

Cassis village visit

Arrive in the fishing village of Cassis and discover this cute port as well as the calanques listed by Unesco as a world heritage national park. The land & sea area is known for its white cliffs and turquoise water. Then reach the highest sea cliff in Europe that is named Cape Canaille where you will enjoy a stunning view over the bay.

Enjoy some free time for personal and lunch in the village, relax on the beach or board a motor boat for a highly recommended 45-minute boat ride (tickets not included) to admire the natural beauty of the local creeks.

Marseille City Visit

Your full day tour continues with a drive to Marseille and its famous old port. Take in Panoramic views of the city and visit Notre Dame de la Garde basilica on a walking tour, then enjoy a panoramic tour of the city. Follow your tour with the visit of Saint Victor Abbey and the crypt which houses 4th century marble sarcophagus.

A bit of History

Founded more than 2,500 years ago, the port city of Marseille (English conventional spelling Marseilles) has a history of vigorous independence asserted against central authority in a variety of forms. It retained its status as a free city even after falling to Julius Caesar’s troops in the 1st century BC, and after centuries of decline it was revived and allowed great independence under the local control of the viscounts of Provence in the 10th–14th centuries. 

After Provence joined the Kingdom of France in the 15th century, Marseille retained a separate administration and continually engaged in spirited revolt against kings or governments that threatened its liberties. It was for this reason that in 1800, when France was divided into the present administrative départements, Marseille was only reluctantly granted its status as capital of the Bouches-du-Rhône.

The Old Port

The Old port of Marseille was completely renovated in 2013 and the district is without a doubt the heart of the City. This is where all the major events of Marseille take place and where the crowds meet when they celebrate their football team’s achievements.

Le Panier District

Your guided tour continues in Le Panier district. It is another area that one should not miss when visiting Marseille. This popular neighborhood is topped by the Old Charity and is composed of small but steep streets, crossed by multiple stairways and lined with elevated buildings and their colorful façades. Here, spend time to stroll through the narrow streets and reach Moulin’s square where numerous art galleries, restaurants, cafés and designer boutiques have settled.

After the visit of Marseille, it will be time for us to make our way back to Aix en Provence and that will be the end of our services.
