While you’re in port in Marseille, make the most of your time in the south of France by discovering Aix-en-Provence on this private shore excursion. After port pickup, enjoy a scenic drive north to Aix-en-Provence, a magnificent city founded by the Romans in the 1st century BC. Admire the city’s rich architecture while walking along Cours Mirabeau, a famous promenade lined with 19th-century buildings, cafes and shops once frequented by historical figures like Albert Camus.

Head toward the Place du Général de Gaulle with its spectacular fountain. Witness the mix of water and art with a visit to the 17th-century Four Dolphins Fountain sculpture and the Place d’Albertas fountain, whose basin was made by local students. Other spectacular sights to see in this lively city are City Hall and the Cathédral Saint-Sauveur d'Aix, offering unique impressions of Aix-en-Provence's preserved heritage, with buildings dating back to the 12th century!

Afterwards, you’ll get the exclusive opportunity to visit the atelier of locally born artist Paul Cézanne (at your own expense) and attend a workshop at Les Lauves. See inside the small pavilion that served as the work space for Cézanne’s masterpieces.

Your private guide will show you around the most stunning places in Aix-en-Provence while providing you with informative and captivating tales. After your 4-hour private tour, enjoy a relaxing drive by private vehicle back to the cruise ship port.

My group was totally thrilled with this excursion. Maria was a fabulous guide and aix-en-Provence was beautiful. We arrived early I the morning and there were few tourists there which was great. As well as their usual market there was a crafts market set up with fabulous hand crafted merchandise and we lucked into a "period costume" parade. I would recommend this excursion and viator.
