Tour description provided by Viator

While you’re in port in Marseille, spend your time on a private shore excursion visiting the enchanting village of Les Baux de Provence. This beautiful village is located on rocky cliffs in the heart of the Alpilles mountains in France’s Provence region. Enjoy private transportation as your guide entertains you with tales of the village's eventful history dating back to the 10th century. Visit Château des Baux and take in panoramic views from Baux Plateau before exploring olive groves and tasting local olive oils.

When your cruise ship docks in Marseille, enjoy a private shore excursion to see the best sights of Les Baux de Provence. Soak up the stunning scenery in a private vehicle as you drive to Les Baux de Provence. Travel along the city’s paved alleys and stone houses and discover the Church of Saint Vincent, which is dug into the rock, and the Chapel of the White Penitents, a beautiful yet simplistic chapel located near the cliff's edge. Perched at the top of the village’s hill sits Château des Baux, an impressive castle offering exceptional views of the valley.

The beautiful Baux Valley is perfect for olive growing and boasts some of the most abundant olive groves in Provence. On your private tour of Les Baux de Provence, visit one of the region’s fascinating olive-growing estates with your guide, where you can discover the various stages of oil manufacturing. Then, enjoy a tasting of the oils this region is famous for!

Throughout your shore excursion, your private guide will make sure that you experience the rich beauty and culture of Les Baux de Provence.
