Enjoy a visit to a Calissons boutique and taste the local specialty! You may wish to visit the Pavillon Vendôme, a fine example of an elegant "bastide" built in the 17th century. Preceded by a beautiful French garden, the Pavillon Vendôme was built in 1665. Today it is a small museum housing a collection of furniture, paintings and 18th century fabrics.
Continue your trip to Marseille. You can start your visit for example with The Pharo promontory that was just a mere rocky plateau on which only rushes and wild grasses grew, but Napoleon decided to build "a house at the water's edge". The guide will drive you to the famous Notre Dame de la Garde, « Our Good Mother » as the Marseillais call her with affection. You will pass the Corniche where you will see the most beautiful houses of Marseille, towards the Palais Longchamp, originally the water tower of the town, a very beautiful example of 19th century architecture; the Park Longchamp is today the largest park of central Marseille.
