Art Guild Travel | Marseille, Aix-en-Provence, and Montpellier

May 22–June 1, 2013
Wednesday, May 22, 2013 - 12:00am

Pre-trip extension to Lille and the new Louvre Museum in Lens May 19–22.

Marseille, Aix-en-Provence, Arles, Gardanne, and Aubagne offer us the opportunity for special museum exhibits, as well as exciting receptions in artists’ studio. We will visit private collections open exclusively for us during this art­-focused adventure.

In Montpellier, France’s eighth-largest city, we focus on the exciting new architecture, with visits to Zaha Hadid’s futuristic structure, the Pierre Vives building; the new blue, cube-like city hall; and the RBC Design Center designed by France’s celebrated architect Jean Nouvel, another coolly modernist structure that will house the RBC brand’s furniture showroom. Gardens, chateaux, and fine cuisine enhance this itinerary that is tres magnifique!
