Colours and flavors of Provence – from Nice to Marseille
5 days / 4 Nights

Sung by the poets, sublimated by the painters, Provence offers a wide range of experiences and emotions. Under its sun, at the same time, shine the blue of lavender fields, the green of its vines and the silver reflections of the olive leaves. Let yourself be rocked by the cicadas‘ song and stroll through picturesque markets up to medieval perched villages and down to the Calanques (creeks) with their emerald green waters.
