1. St. Tropez & Port Grimaud

  • Walking: Moderate
  • Shopping Time
  • Scenic Tour

Once a sleepy fishing village, St Tropez was catapulted onto the world map in the 1950’s by legends like Brigitte Bardot and Sacha Distel. They turned it into the French Riviera’s chic capital and these days it’s home to the crème de la crème in film and fashion. There are far more luxury yachts than fishing boats moored at the beautiful harbour. After an hour-and-a-half drive from the port, enjoy a guided walk from the waterfront through the old streets. Take a look at the pink and yellow houses, which have been converted into fashionable cafes and pastry shops. You’ll see Place des Lices, too, where lots of celebs play petanque in the summer. Then you’ll get around two hours’ free time for a little retail therapy or a laid-back lunch. Later on, make a brief visit to charming Port Grimaud, also known as the Little Venice of France. This unique resort looks like a traditional Mediterranean fishing village but in actual fact it’s a modern complex of luxury villas and houses linked by a network of canals, neat little bridges and narrow alleys....

2. Cassis

  • Walking: Moderate
  • Scenic Tour

“He who has seen Paris and not Cassis has seen nothing.” Even if this saying by French poet Frederic Mistral seems exaggerated, it still reflects the interest of this little seaside resort at the foot of the Cape Canaille cliff. A former Roman trading post, Cassis is every bit the charmer with its café-lined quays, jagged little coves and sun-blushed beaches. Your coach will drop you off at the top of Cassis, where you'll board a mini-train to take you to the bay area. When you get to this friendly little town, enjoy a short introduction from your guide, then spend some free time getting to know the place, shopping in the boutiques or relaxing in the cafes. Later on, taking the mini train back to the top of Cassis, you’ll re-board the coaches for the drive back to Toulon. If the weather allows it, we'll even to drive to Gineste Hills, a stunning view point, famous in these areas - Make sure you pack your camera for this one.... More details

4. Bormes Les Mimosas

  • Walking: Moderate
  • Scenic Tour

Discover the charming Provencal village of Bormes Les Mimosas, known in France as the Village Of Flowers. Why?

Sit back and enjoy the scenic drive to this enchanting Medieval village where you’ll set off on a guided walk. Wander down pretty narrow streets which open out on to tiny squares, surrounded by flowers and mimosa trees. See the 16th-century Chapel of Saint Francois de Paule. And visit the 18th-century Romanesque Church of Saint Trophyme. Afterwards you’ll have some free time for a spot of shopping or to just relax at the terrace of a local café and watch the world go by.

5. Aix En-Provence

  • Walking: Moderate
  • Shopping Time
  • Scenic Tour

Discover Aix, the former capital of the Provence region. It’s also the town of the tempestuous politician Mirabeau and the famous painter Paul Cezanne. You’ll love the old-fashioned atmosphere of the place, which has managed to hang on to most of its character from the 17th and 18th-centuries. Your guide will lead you for about 1 hour, through the old town, from tree-lined Cours Mirabeau to Quartier Mazarin, passing elegant old hotels, majestic avenues and splashing fountains along the way. Then you’ll get some free time for shopping, an al fresco lunch, or perhaps a little more exploring, before meeting your guide and heading back to the ship.... More details

6. Castellet & Wine Tasting

  • Walking: Moderate
  • Refreshment Included
  • Limited Spaces

The hilltop village of Le Castellet plays host to this trip, which gives you a snapshot of traditional French country life. Everything about this slowed-down settlement is charming, from the Provençal-style cottages to the Medieval stone church. As you weave through the narrow streets, you’ll get the lowdown of the village’s history from a clued-up guide. The route curves all the way to Le Castellet’s most iconic feature, an 11th-century castle perched on the hillside. The views from here stretch right across the countryside, and the sharpest eyes will spot the Circuit Paul Ricard – a bright blue race track where F1 legend Nigel Mansell has held the lap record for more than 25 years. After you’ve poked around the craft workshops and pottery stalls, you’ll take a short drive to an authentic Provençal vineyard. There’s a pretty little chapel in the grounds, and nearly 80 acres of grape-laden vines. You’ll get the full line-up of red, white and rosé to try, before boarding the coach back to Toulon....

7. Marseille & Aix En Provence

  • Walking: Moderate
  • Scenic Tour

This trip is like a checklist of Marseille’s best bits, ranging from the chateau-studded coastline to the city’s most historic landmarks. Things get off to a start along the JF Kennedy Corniche – a winding waterside road which snakes towards Marseille’s yacht-filled marina. You’ll have time to snap a couple of photos at the Old Harbour, before heading to the iconic Notre Dame de la Garde. This towering basilica is the highest point of the city, so expect panoramic views of the Côte d'Azur on one side and Mont Puget on the other. Next, you’ll trace a path back into the city, before driving out to the town of Aix-en-Provence. A guide will lead you along the fairytale-like Cours Mirabeau – a pretty avenue shaded by bowing trees. The ancient Aix Cathedral is also on the agenda, and you’ll get up close to its unusual mix of Roman and Gothic architecture. Before boarding the bus back to Toulon, there’s a wedge of free time to grab a bite to eat or hit the shops.... More details

8. Marseille On Your Own

  • Walking: Easy
  • Shopping Time

This city transfer is a chance to journey through the streets of Marseille at your own pace. The coach will take you right to the heart of France’s second biggest settlement, where you’ll have free rein to explore. For the best views, pay a visit to Notre-Dame de la Garde basilica – at 490 feet it’s the highest point of the city. Then, you can move on to the old port, the lifeblood of Marseille. Here, you can visit a waterfront restaurant to try bouillabaisse, a local fish stew, or visit the 17th century fortresses separating the harbour from the Mediterranean Sea. Head inland for some retail therapy at Centre Bourse, or hop on board a free ferry boat to see the town hall.... More details
