This full day Toulon shore trip
visits the famous city of Aix en Provence where you enjoy a driving tour and a visit to the old town. Then in the afternoon you visit the wine country and enjoy an included wine tasting!
After meeting your guide at the pier in Toulon, you depart for Aix-en-Provence. Upon arrival, you enjoy a driving tour of the city center including the Cours Mirabeau. This beautiful tree lined street is world famous and well known for its monumental fountain and popular cafes. You then pass through the Quarter Mazarin, with its unique 17th century chessboard pattern and many aristocratic townhouses with their Baroque facades and beautifully carved wooden doors.
Much of the old town, or Vieil Aix, is pedestrian-only and you will enjoy a walk through it. The labyrinth of narrow streets lead you to the 17th century Town Hall, the Archbishop's Palace, and St. Sauveur Cathedral with its delightful Romanesque cloister.
While you are in Aix en Provence, you have free time for lunch in one of the popular cafes along Cours Mirabeau.
Aix en Provence was founded by the Romans and they have grown wine for years in the nearby surroundings. A short drive from Aix and you will find yourself in the wine country near the Saint Victoire Mountains. Included in the tour is the opportunity to taste a Côtes de Provence labeled wine and also a Coteaux d'Aix Appellation, making it a perfect afternoon in the French countryside!
After your wine tasting you return to the pier in Toulon.Mobility
