MarseilleAzamara’s 7-Night Italy, France & Spain Voyage calls in Marseille, France’s major port on the Mediterranean. It has a number of sites of interest—its cathedral, harbor, and buildings by the modern architect Le Corbusier, as well as a reputation for serving some of the best bouillabaisse. But first, you can spend the morning getting a taste of Aix-en-Provence, about an hour north.
The Aix-en-Provence with French Pastry Lesson excursion begins with a tour of this lovely medieval town that has charmed countless artists and writers, most notably Paul Cézanne. You’ll have lunch on your own at one of the restaurants specializing in Provencal cuisine, before meeting up with a local pastry chef, where you’ll learn to create some of France’s signature treats. You’ll be able to take some back to your ship to share with fellow Azamara guests at dinner.
