Marseille

About the city

Marseille is the second largest city in France, the biggest Mediterranean port and the economic hub of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region. Marseille is set in a beautiful location, snuggled between craggy limestone hills and a sweeping bay, and is rich with history, which wasn’t always pleasant. Marseille is a popular holiday destination, as it has 300 days of sunshine a year. Today Marseilles still keeps traces of its tumultuous past, this ancient city is today very active and attractive. It has powerful charm which encourages visitors, to stroll through its old districts around le Vieux Port, in the gardens with the ancient ruins or the gardens of Longchamp Palace and, of course, on the esplanade of Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde Cathedral, which overlooks the entire city Marseille is atmospheric and charming and a real must.

Aix en Provence

day 2 - At 10.00am
Discover the beautiful city of Aix-en-Provence with this full-day tour highlighting the best the city has to offer. You’ll enjoy the magnificent Cours Mirabeau, take a stroll through one of the city centre markets and visit the studio of the renowned impressionist painter, Paul Cezanne.

Walk with your guide on the Cours Mirabeau lined with a double row of large plane trees which form a tunnel of greenery. The exclusive street is home to grand and elaborate 17th and 18th century private mansions. On hot summer days you will appreciate the glorious shade afforded by the trees and the many cooling fountains that you will see along the way. The Cours Mirabeau divides the city in two, with the old town to the north with its old and irregular streets while the new city or the Quartier Mazarin extends to the south and west. The old town is packed with shops, architectural and religious sites and bustling squares. Take a stroll through one of the numerous markets taking place every day in the centre of the city.

Aix is also the birthplace of the painter Paul Cezanne, who is considered one of the most influential artists of his era and is said to form the bridge between late 19th-century Impressionism and the early 20th century's new line of artistic form, cubism. Both Matisse and Picasso are said to have remarked that Cézanne ‘is the father of us all’. This is an unmissable opportunity to visit the artist’s studio, which was built from his own plans and where time seems to have stood still.

Nice

About the city

Nice weathers its storms of tourisms each summer with all the usual accoutrements of a Riviera town: Casual affluence, an ample beach, museums, flowery avenues but lack the affected aloofness of its neighbours. Furthermore, Nice is blessed with good public transport within the city and to all points on the Côte d’Azur, and makes it a good base for Riviera exploring. Nice’s long thin beach and bronzing guests are the city’s principal attractions for most visitors. Nonetheless, Nice’s vieille ville, the old town, is worth a visit. The old quarter is an unusual blend of glitter and a Mediterranean medieval quarter of tiny streets and outdoors markets. For a spectacular Riviera panorama, climb up to the top of the chateau. The city has several outstanding museums, such as the Musée Matisse, devoted to the work of French painter Henri Matisse, or the Musée National Marc Chagall, dedicated to the work of painter Marc Chagall. The majestic promenade des Anglais sweeps along the coast. This pedestrian zone swarms with boutiques, busy restaurants and all variety of tourists. The nightlife in Nice is effervescent, the labyrinth of tiny streets in the vieille ville hides restaurants and bars, and accounts for the city’s Mediterranean flair.

Turin

About the city

Turin, popularly known as the city of the car, is located in the Piedmont region in northwest Italy. The river Po and the Alps circumscribe this beautiful city, which offers visitors a feast of baroque architecture, ornate art nouveau cafés and museum collections covering everything from Egyptology to contemporary art. The heart of the city since Roman times is based on the Piazza Castello, Castle Square, surrounded by arches, each built at different periods. Nearby, the royal palaces of the Savoy House, Palazzo Madama and Palazzo Reale, lie with modest splendour. If Florence has its Duomo, Turin has its Mole Antonelliana. Crowned with a massive dome and conical spiral, the high building is the symbol of the city. Go up the glass elevator to the observation deck to get the best view of the city and before sunset, a superb view of the neighbouring Alps. Turin has proved to be more than an industrial city. To get a sense of the city’s urban revival stroll along its beautiful porticoes for some fine shopping and stop to enjoy a Vermouth before being delighted by its delicious cuisine.

Milan

About the city

With something almost Northern European in the air, yet exuding Italian style, Milan is Italy's most cosmopolitan city. The capital of Lombardy is both hardworking and glamorous - powerful in businesses from finance to fashion and, of course, football. But what gives Milan its certain something is its status as the epicentre of Italian fashion and interior design. International fashionistas, designers, supermodels and paparazzi descend upon the city twice a year for its spring and autumn fairs: Milan, which has carefully guarded its reputation for flair, drama and creativity, is Italy's natural stage. This is certainly one of the best places in Italy to shop, or windowshop. Milan is the main industrial, commercial and financial centre of Italy and as such, is unsurprisingly business-like in appearance. At first glance, it lacks the wow factor, but if you take time and are determined to explore Milan’s streets, you’ll access its aesthetically appealing gems – and they do exist. Cut through the modern metropolitan bustle, and you will stumble across impressive churches and palaces, the pretty Navigli area, the chic Brera district and lively university quarter, and no need to mention a landmark such as the Duomo, or that the city is impressively home to Leonardo da Vinci's 15th century masterpiece The Last Supper. Milan cannot be faulted when it comes to having a good time. The Milanese know how to party – and they don’t waste time getting started. Nightlife tends to kick off at 6pm; enjoying an aperitivo in which locals unwind with post-work drinks and nibbles before heading home is the rule rather than exception. So whether you’re looking for cut-price fashion, an alternative city break or a chance to paint the town red, Milan has undoubtedly got it covered.
