Experience the idyllic charms, vibrant cultures and historic legacy of Provence with a full-day tour of three French jewels, including Marseille’s Old Port, the feudal village of La Castellet and colorful Sanary-sur-Mer. With eight hours ashore, you’ll delve deep into Provencal life, starting with a guided exploration of Marseille’s Old Port, one of France’s oldest towns and once a thriving Phocean trading post rife with maritime history. Admire the view atop Garde Hill and admire the Roman-Byzantine accents of Notre-Dame de la Garde, an icon church landmark with a large Virgin Mary statue on its bell tower. Venture to the well-preserved medieval village of Le Castellet, a clifftop commune where you’ll spend 90 minutes freely wandering around the wisteria-laced stone walls of quaint squares and old houses. This is a prime shopping spot for leather goods, candles, ceramics and jewelry made by local artisans. Your final stop is Sanary-sur-Mer, a seaside enclave tucked between Marseille and Toulon where an hour’s free time will be spent at your leisure. Admire colorful pointus boats in the picturesque harbor, stroll cobblestone backstreets past Byzantine churches, or pick up authentic souvenirs in one of the town’s many street markets.
