When your cruise ship docks in Marseille, you’ll be picked up by your guide and taken on a scenic drive north into the heart of the Provence region. Arrive in Aix-en-Provence and discover the rich architecture of the city while strolling along Cours Mirabeau, a road lined with quaint 19th-century buildings. Walk to the Place du Général de Gaulle and see its spectacular and well-known fountain.
Visit Place d’Albertras and see the fountain whose basin was made by local students. See the Four Dolphins Fountain, an impressive sculpture created in 1667. Other amazing sights in the vibrant city are City Hall and the Cathédral Saint Sauveur, which features 12th-century buildings offering insight into Aix-en-Provence's unique heritage.
Before you enjoy the shady squares of the eclectic city, you will be able to attend a workshop at Cézanne's former working space, Les Lauves (at your own expense). Take a look inside the small pavilion to see where the local-born artist got his inspiration.
