VISIT MARSEILLE, PROVENCE

WE TAKE YOU IN MARSEILLE & AROUND

Marseille is a jewel on the Provence, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. It is a must-see stop in the South of France, to enjoy a luxury holiday with the sun and sea air caressing your skin with every walk and excursion through the wonders of this great French city.

You will be gently guided by our tailor-made itinerary, through the lively cobbled streets of Noailles, to the famous Vieux Port where you can have lunch in one of the many Michelin-starred restaurants and taste the famous Bouillabaisse with freshly caught seafood, prepared according to the rules of art. Not far from there, you can visit the Mucem, the first major museum dedicated to the Mediterranean. Located at the entrance to the port and spread over 3 sites including the Esplanade du J4, Fort Saint-Jean and the Centre de Conservation des Ressources, the walk will sweeten your afternoon.

Take to the sea and let the Mediterranean wind guide you towards the Frioul Islands and the Château d’If, off the coast of the Endoume district. A visit on board a private sailing boat will enhance your experience, sublimated by an aperitif under a sky coloured by the sunset.

The Côte d’Azur is full of sublime settings, close to Marseille, the Parc National des Calanques and its wild landscape, which offers a beautiful panorama. Located between Marseille and Cassis, it stretches along a coastal massif of limestone and pudding cliffs, creeks and islets that constitute relatively preserved ecosystems for many living species.
Dive into the heart of this coastal paradise, let the water carry you along, paddle or take a boat trip to complete your experience.

Marseille is one of the main cities of the Provence region. Bordered by the Alps and the Mediterranean Sea, it is a must-see destination proposed by our travel specialists.
