Meet your private guide in central Arles in time for a 9am departure. Traveling by private vehicle, relax on the around 1-hour journey to Aix-en-Provence, the one-time ‘City of Counts’.
Follow your guide on a tour of the historic Old Town, stopping to admire the Saint Sauveur Cathedral, stroll down the tree-lined boulevard of Cours Mirabeau, and soak up the atmosphere at the city’s lively market. Enjoy free time to shop for souvenirs and tuck into lunch (own expense), before continuing to Marseille.
Spend the afternoon taking in the highlights of Marseille, starting with the hilltop Notre-Dame de la Garde Basilica, from where the views stretch out across the city and the Mediterranean coast. Then, head down into the city to explore the Vieux-Port (Old Port), and admire landmarks such as the 11th-century Saint-Victor Abbey, Marseille Cathedral, and the If Castle.
On return to Arles, your tour ends back at the departure point around 5pm.
