Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Marseille: Carrieres des Lumieres (in Les Baux de Provence), Avignon (Pont d'Avignon & Palais des Papes) and Route des Cretes (in La Ciotat). The adventure continues: take in the spiritual surroundings of Basilique Notre-Dame de la Garde, get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, steep yourself in history at Chateau d'If, and take in the waterfront at Le Vieux Port.
