  • Details
From Avignon take a day trip to Marseille and Aix-en-Provence with a private guide to experience the highlights of these must-visit Provencal cities. In Aix-en-Provence, view splendid 17th-century mansions lining the famous Cours Mirabeau boulevard and visit the studio of renowned post-Impressionist artist Paul Cézanne. Then, discover the oldest city in France on a sightseeing tour of Marseille, whose highlights include the Vieux Port (Old Port) and the hilltop basilica of Notre-Dame de la Garde.
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.
