Day 01| URBAN EXPLORING
City discovery tour ⋅ Trad bistro meal ⋅ Cool rooftop drinks
A journey of friendship and flavor begins with an urban hike through Marseille’s vibrant center with a local guide who brings the town’s multilayered history to life. When the sun gets low, we gather for apéro. Enjoy a round of pastis before a welcome dinner in a fabulous little bistro nearby. Later, we head to Marseille’s most famous avenue for rooftop drinks before heading out to discover the city’s legendary nightlife.
Day 02| SOUTHERN SPIRIT
Multicultural market ⋅ Street art tour ⋅ Pastisologie masterclass
One for early risers: sun salutations. Mid-morning, the group comes together for a food tour and market visit to experience some of the hidden gems of this culinary super city. Explore a spread of Maghreb treats and sweets as well as traditional Provençal fare.
This afternoon, we walk the colorful streets of Le Panier, before meeting a graffiti artist guide who will translate the towering artwork that surrounds us. Later, we stop for the most iconic of Marseille's pastimes, a game of pétanque. After a cheeky glass to toast the winners we’ll set out under the warm Mediterranean sun for an exclusive Pastisologie mixology masterclass at Mx Marseille.
Day 03| PERFECT MEDITERRANEAN DAY
Coastal exploration ⋅ Calanques ⋅ Gourmet picnic ⋅ Seafood feast
This morning we head up the coast to the inspired nature of the dramatic Calanques for a perfect Mediterranean seaside day. Our guide leads us to a lesser-known stretch of coastline and a hidden beach where we stop to enjoy the turquoise waters.
Lunch today is a picnic carefully prepared by a local chef. After time to relax or explore, the group comes together for a special apéro before a final night celebration dinner where we share the best of the day’s catch, fresh from the Old Port. Tonight is one to remember with drinks and dancing in our favorite local hotspot.
