Tour Description :

One is quite small, the other one is the second largest city in France. One is inland, the other one is a coastal town that was born from the Mediterranean. One is very classy, upper middle- class and and even aristocratic in the past, the other one is simpler. One is more intellectual, the other one is more commercial and used to be industrial. One is spectacular, the other one is more a hidden place. All these differences make this trip combining Aix-en-Provence and Marseille captivating.
