La Seyne-sur-Mer may seem a bit faint compared to its more glamorous and splendid neighbours on the French Mediterranean coast. But once in the past, it was a huge and important centre of ship-building, and the town was prosperous. Today, you can still see many beautiful old villas and visit the most interesting sight: the Tamaris Corniche. In the 19th century, it was a beloved location for many artists, including writer George Sand and painter August Renoir.
If La Seyne-sur-Mer is a stop on your cruise journey, we can offer you three different driving tours from the port. Each of these tours has different routes, but no matter which option you chose, you will get the best service and a professional and knowledgeable guide competent in Jewish history and culture.
For fans of impressionist art, the ultimate option is the tour to Aix-en-Provence and its surroundings. You will see the same landscapes that inspired Paul Cezanne in his later years and feel the unique meditative atmosphere of this area. Today, Aix-en-Provence is also a remarkable spot on the Jewish map of France, as it has an active Jewish community and a modern synagogue.
If you want to dive into medieval history and wander through the romantic streets of charming villages, the Jewish Provence tour will make your wish come true. You will travel to several different destinations, learn about the life of the Jewish community in Provence pf the past, and visit the most stunning sights.
And, if you prefer big cities to cosy towns, you can take our tour to Marseille – the main city in Provence and the second-largest city in France. During this trip, you will learn about the role Jews played in the development of the city and visit its main Jewish and general tourist attractions.
