NOTRE-DAME DE LA GARDE
Emblematic figure of the city of Marseille, she watches over the sailors, fishermen and all the people of Marseille. During your stay in the city, pay a visit to the "Good Mother", as she is known in the city, and admire the panoramic view from the top of the hill. Visible from all four corners of the city, it faces the Mediterranean Sea in all its majesty. Thanks to its architectural beauty inside and out, and the magnificent 360-degree view over the whole city, it is the most visited monument in Marseille. It's accessible on foot or by tourist train, so you can enjoy the ride without having to climb the hill!

LE VIEUX PORT
Like Notre Dame de la Garde, Marseille's Vieux Port is one of the city's symbols, located at the foot of the famous Canebière. Gatherings, major events, fireworks display: it's Marseille's landmark! Take a selfie under the Ombrière, stroll along the quayside and watch the fishermen go out to sea, discover the magnificent heritage surrounding the Vieux-Port, take a mini-cruise on the Ferry Boat... There's no shortage of activities in this must-see location! For those with a sweet tooth, don't miss the fish market every morning and, if you're more in the mood for flowers, the flower market on Tuesday and Saturday mornings.

THE CALANQUES NATIONAL PARK
The Calanques massif is a natural wonder hidden between Marseille and Cassis. This exceptional and unique landscape is a must-see in Marseille. With its pebble and fine sand beaches, small coves and turquoise waters, this jewel box of biodiversity has all the makings of a postcard! It's the perfect place to soak up the sun, explore the seabed, or indulge in water sports such as kayaking. Whether you want to go hiking or simply enjoy the nature and fresh water, this magnificent place is sure to please. Some of the beaches are more accessible than others, making them ideal for families, while those that are more difficult to access will delight hiking enthusiasts. It's well worth the effort - it's a place like no other in the world, and one that deserves its place among Marseille's wonders!

Salon de Provence
Pastoralism and Provence have always gone hand in hand. In the dry Crau, the stony plains have been devoted to sheep farming since Roman times, followed by meat production. Pastoralism has unchanging characteristics: extensive farming, large flocks of Arles merinos and summer transhumance to the mountain pastures, before returning in autumn. The Domaine du Merle in Salon-de-Provence is home to France's only school for transhumant shepherds.
Côte Bleue Regional Park
Carry le Rouet
This moderate hike (12km, 4h) will take you in the hills behind the famous seaside resort of Carry-le-Rouet: the Estaque range.
The route alternates between paths in the valleys and wide tracks. The return journey will guide you along the coastline, through the "sentier du lézard" (lizard trail), a path laid out in the Côte Bleue regional marine park, with ten commentary boards on the flora and fauna of the seaside.
Cavalaire sur Mer
Along the coast between Le Lavandou and La Croix-Valmer, Cavalaire sur Mer offers you some magnificent scenery! Nature walks, water sports, traditions and the flavours of Provence, this little paradise has everything to seduce you. Don't forget to stop at the port, which is well worth a visit for boat lovers.
Located between Cannes and Nice, Cap d'Antibes is a 3.7km2 peninsula, a treasure for both nature and the eyes. The scenery is sublime, but the cape also owes its glittering reputation to its visitors: after Flaubert and Charlie Chaplin, the world of showbiz has now taken up residence on the cape, notably at the Hôtel du Cap Eden Roc. To explore this natural setting, choose the sea and change your perspective by renting a boat, sea kayak or paddle.
Grasse region is famous for its enchanting perfumes. But the sensory experience doesn't stop there when you visit the Côte d'Azur. Bouquets of flowers, shades of colour... Grasse reveals its charm to those who appreciate it with all their senses!
To visit Grasse is to awaken your senses. Discover the world of Grasse perfumes, listed as an Intangible Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO, at emblematic perfume factories such as Fragonard, Galimard and Molinard in Grasse, or at the International Perfume Museum. So, will you be able to tame the perfumer's organ?
