A small-group tour is a personal and effective way to explore the charms of Aix-en-Provence and Marseille. Begin this full-day adventure with a motorcoach ride to Aix-en-Provence, a university and spa town and the cultural and political center of Provence. Embark on a guided walking tour that starts in the heart of town at Cours Mirabeau, through the city's romantic streets, lined with stately 17th- and 18th-century mansions, with a sophisticated atmosphere and a plethora of historic sights and sparkling fountains. Pause for lunch in a local restaurant, then explore on your own. Reboard the motorcoach and head back towards Marseille. Drive along the Corniche du President J.F. Kennedy, pass the magnificent Cathédrale de la Major, and pause for a photo stop at Le Vieux Port (Old Port). Your final stop is at the Basilica Notre-Dame de la Garde to explore this neo-Byzantine church. Relax on your return to the ship.

Special Notes:

Flash photography & video camera are not permitted in the Cathedral. Relevant amount of walking over even & cobblestone streets, many steps to negotiate in Notre Dame de la Garde; comfortable shoes are highly recommended.
