Aix en Provence and surroundings

Marseille and its horizons escape

Take advantage of your stay at the Mozart Hotel to discover Aix en Provence and the surrounding area. Marseille, the second oldest city in France, is a huge theatre scene full of colours and flavours! Close to our hotel, 30 km from Aix en Provence, it is an invitation to travel in itself. Baptized Massalia, perfumed with the scents of the Orient, it is a magnificent city, which rises and falls according to its districts, surrounded by pine forests, limestone rocks and scrubland.

A city of art and culture, Marseille has more than one marvel to share with you. With its 26 centuries of existence, it combines tradition and modernity. The must-sees: Notre Dame de la Garde or the "Good Mother" as she is known in Marseille, the Canebière, the Old Port with its cafés and terraced restaurants, the Panier (the oldest district of Marseille) with its narrow streets and the Vieille Charité museum, the Vallon des Auffes and its charming harbour, the Corniche and its dreamy landscapes overlooking the sea, the Mucem (the museum of European and Mediterranean civilisations), the Fort Saint Jean, the Terrasses du Port, the Estaque and the painters...

For a visit to Marseille that does not stop at the Old Port or the Mucem, a boat trip is compulsory to discover the Frioul Islands and the Château d'If, the setting for Alexandre Dumas' novel "The Count of Monte Cristo", or the Calanques, marvels of beauty in the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean.
