While your cruise ship is docked in Marseilles, get a flavor of France's oldest city and Aix-en-Provence on a full-day shore excursion. Admire Provence’s pretty countryside as you travel to the lovely city of Aix. Enjoy free time to explore the delightful squares and markets of this historical town, and perhaps visit Paul Cezanne’s studio (own expense), where the Impressionist painted ‘The Bathers.’ Later, take a panoramic tour of Marseille, seeing landmarks such as the Basilica of Notre Dame and Chateau d’If, and the elegant mansions along the scenic Corniche.
Why Travellers Choose This Tour
If you're a fan of Impressionism or Paul Cezanne in particular, a visit to his final studio in Aix is a must. The simplicity of the studio, with its large window to let in Provence's beautiful light, really captures the spirit of this painter and is filled with items that appeared in his works.
