Since being designated a European Capital of Culture for 2013, with an estimated €660 million of funding in the bargain, Marseille has been in the throes of an extraordinary transformation, with no fewer than five major new arts centers, a beautifully refurbished port, revitalized neighborhoods, and a slew of new shops and restaurants. Once the underdog, this time-burnished city is now welcoming an influx of weekend tourists who have colonized entire neighborhoods and transformed them into elegant pieds-à-terre (or should we say, mer).

The second-largest city in France, Marseille is one of Europe's most vibrant destinations. Feisty and fond of broad gestures, it is also as complicated and as cosmopolitan now as it was when a band of Phoenician Greeks first sailed into the harbor that is today's Vieux Port in 600 BC. Legend has it that on that same day a local chieftain's daughter, Gyptis, needed to choose a husband, and her wandering eyes settled on the Greeks' handsome commander Protis. Her dowry brought land near the mouth of the Rhône, where the Greeks founded Massalia, the most important Continental shipping port in antiquity. The port flourished for some 500 years as a typical Greek city, enjoying the full flush of classical culture, its gods, its democratic political system, its sports and theater, and its naval prowess. Caesar changed all that, besieging the city in 49 BC and seizing most of its colonies. In 1214 Marseille was seized again, this time by Charles d'Anjou, and was later annexed to France by Henri IV in 1481, but it was not until Louis XIV took the throne that the biggest transformations of the port began; he pulled down the city walls in 1666 and expanded the port to the Rive Neuve (New Riverbank). The city was devastated by plague in 1720, losing more than half its population. By the time of the Revolution, Marseille was on the rebound once again, with industries of soap manufacturing and oil processing flourishing, encouraging a wave of immigration from Provence and Italy. With the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869, Marseille became the greatest boomtown in 19th-century Europe. With a large influx of immigrants from areas as exotic as Tangiers, the city quickly acquired the multicultural population it maintains to this day.

Exkursionen in MARSEILLE

Discover the historic landmarks and beauty of Aix-en-Provence on foot during this scenic and memorable walking tour through the Old City. This city is all class: its leafy boulevards and public squares are lined with 17th- and 18th-century mansions, punctuated by gurgling moss-covered fountains. Haughty stone lions guard its grandest avenue, cafe-laced cours Mirabeau, where fashionable Aixois pose on polished pavement terraces sipping espresso.


Depart the pier for the approximate 45-minute drive inland to Aix-en-Provence, which was once the capital of Provence, an independent kingdom at the time. Today, Aix is a lively university and spa town with a sophisticated atmosphere.


Aix en Provence

Upon arrival, take a guided walking tour through the romantic streets of Aix and past its stately 17th- and 18th-century mansions. Other sites to be seen include the famous Cours Mirabeau, an idyllic, tree-lined boulevard with beautiful fountains, the statues of King René of Provence and Anjou, as well as many outdoor cafés. In addition, learn about the great 19th-century master Paul Cézanne, who was born in Aix in 1839.


After a refreshment stop at a café at Cours Mirabeau, some free time is made available before re-boarding the coach for the return drive to the pier.



Please note: This tour requires an extensive amount of walking for approximately 1/2 mile (800 metres), over mostly paved surfaces with a few steps to negotiate. It is not suitable for guests with limited mobility or those who utilise a wheelchair. We recommend wearing comfortable clothing, walking shoes and sun protection.

Arles - Roman Capital of Provence

Discover Arles, the largest city in France that resides along the banks of the Rhône River. Once a metropolis of the ancient Romans, today you can still see the arena, the Alyscamps burial grounds, the amphitheater and the Roman baths of Constantin, all of which are registered as UNESCO sites.


Embark your coach for a drive to Arles through the heart of Provence pass the Port of Provence, The Delta of the Rhône River and Camargue.


Arles

Your first destination in Arles will be the Ancient Greek Necropolis of Les Alyscamps. While this well-preserved Greek Cemetery is fascinating in and of itself, this park is perhaps best known for its many appearances in the works of Vincent Van Gogh and Paul Gauguin.


After exploring this beautiful promenade you will drive to the centre of the Roman Town where you will visit the Great Amphitheater. The presence of such a structure is tribute to Arles's importance as a regional Roman capital. You will also see Forum Roman Square, the Amphitheater and Republic Square. Then you will proceed to the Van Gogh Café, the famous subject in Van Gogh's Café Terrace at Night.


Continue to the Town Hall where you will take a narrow staircase to go underground in the cryptoporticus. This series of vault-ceiling tunnels formed the base of the forum and was - and is still- used as a warehouse.


After visiting these incredible sites you will proceed to the City Centre where you will be served lunch in a local restaurant and then you will be able to enjoy free time.


Return to the ship via your coach on an approximate 1-hour and 15 minute ride.



Please note: This tour involves an extensive amount of activity and involves walking over unpaved or cobbled paths for approximately 1000m (.62 miles). This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility or those who utilise a wheelchair. We recommend wearing comfortable clothing, walking shoes and sun protection. Bring local currency for any purchases.

Avignon & Chateauneuf du Pape

Soak up the essence of French culture, history and cuisine on this delightful full-day excursion in the Southern Rhone Valley. Enjoy a wine tasting at Châteauneuf-du-Pape, a delicious and refined lunch, and a walking tour of Avignon.


Tour and Tasting at the Illustrious Châteauneuf-du-Pape

Make a scenic 90-minute drive to Châteauneuf-du-Pape's legendary vineyards. Established by the Archbishop of Bordeaux in the early 14th century, Châteauneuf-du-Pape translates to "the Pope's new castle" in reference to the Pope relocating the papacy to this region in Avignon. Today, Châteauneuf-du-Pape is one of the most productive regions, with 110,000 hectolitres of wine produced annually in a region encompassing nearly 8,000 acres.


Make a visit to the cellars of the Chateau des Fines-Roches, nestled at the center of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation. Learn about the art of making wines with an informative introduction, and then of course delight in a wine tasting before traveling to your lunch destination.


Avignon: Gourmet Lunch and Walking Tour

Drive 30 minutes to Avignon to the Restaurant L'Essentiel, your venue for lunch. Make the short walk from the coach past the Pope's Palace to arrive at the restaurant, equally charming and grand, with vaulted archways and a beautiful outdoor courtyard dating from the 17th century. Delight in a sumptuous lunch in a lovely setting, working up an appetite for your walking tour.


Next, discover the history of Avignon on foot on a 90-minute guided walking tour. Discover the Catholic roots of this city, founded by Pope Clement in the early 14th century and maintained with papal rule until 1791, when it officially became part of France. See the famous Pont d'Avignon of the French nursery rhyme and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.


Your knowledgeable guide helps you discover the manifold charms of Avignon, with its spectacular architecture and views that make it the heart of Provence's culture and history. See for yourself how the city is centered around the largest Gothic palace in Europe, the Palais des Papes (UNESCO). Avignon's medieval architecture and stature as a destination for art and culture was established with the transferal of the papacy in the 14th century. At this time lavish sums were spent on creating the papal palace and other religious architecture. Enjoy some free time before rejoining the coach for the journey back to Marseilles.



Please note: This tour involves a significant amount of activity, including over 1.6km of walking (often over cobblestone surfaces) and at least 50 steps, making this tour not suitable for guests with walking difficulties or for those in wheelchairs. Guests must be able to board and exit the coach on their own. Cameras and video are prohibited at the Pope's Palace. Guests are recommended to wear comfortable clothing and expect some sun exposure. Space on this tour is limited; we suggest you book well in advance to avoid disappointment.

Cassis Experience: Sea Views, Cheese and Wine

Marseilles Sightseeing and Cassis Walking Tour

Drive from the pier, getting a sightseeing tour of the gracious port city of Marseilles en route. Arrive in Cassis, founded in the 6th century BC by the Legurians and renamed to Cassis during Roman times. Cassis is home to the spectacular calanques, dramatically shaped coves that provide a natural counterpart to the picturesque charm of the colorful fishing port. Take a 45-minute panoramic walking tour of Cassis and then enjoy an hour to yourself to relax at a bistro, go shopping or watch the locals and tourists pass by.


Cassis Wine Tasting and Luncheon

Cassis is of course famous for its white wine, which you have the opportunity to taste when the tour group reconvenes. Enjoy a lovely lunch of charcuterie (cured meats) and cheeses, followed by some other specialties called calissons and navettes for dessert.


Photo Stop at More Highlights

Make the scenic return walk to the coach, and set off to return to Marseilles. If the conditions are favorable for a good view, pause at the Route des Crêtes for another spectacular viewpoint.

Villages of Provence

Experience the Provençal charm of Southern France during this scenic, full-day excursion to some of the 'must see' villages of Provence - Les Baux de Provence and Saint Rémy de Provence. These two picturesque villages date back centuries; Les Baux de Provence offers a majestic hilltop location with sites of historical interest and the celebrated Cathedral of Images.

St. Remy de Provence

Continue your drive to Saint Rémy de Provence, which acts as a sort of link between the Arles area and the Provence of the Popes. Although it has every appearance of being no more than a prosperous farming community, this small town is inextricably linked to the unavoidable 'tourist route' through Provence. Philosopher Nostradamus was born in a house on Rue Hoche in St. Remy, only later moving to Salon de Provence to compile his famous, influential prophecies. Three centuries later a tormented Vincent Van Gogh sought refuge in St. Remy where he painted some of his best known works.
