WHAT IS A CULTURAL INCENTIVE ACTIVITY BY ISY PROVENCE?
ALTHOUGH WE ARE IN FRANCE, PROVENCE AND IN PARTICULAR MARSEILLE, IS A WORLD OF ITS OWN, WITH A COMPLETELY UNIQUE CULTURE AND LIFESTYLE.
In Provence, culture is rich; in Marseille, the oldest city in France; in specific neighbourhoods where street art is becoming increasingly prominent; in the “Cabanon”, the fisherman’s home without water or electricity, is a reflection of the Calanques’ proud past; in the exceptional works of master architect Le Corbusier; and even in our Velodrome, the emblem Marseille, where the peoples’ history and love of football are celebrated. Culture is everywhere. Our region is enchanting, unusual, and culturally fascinating. We provide you with the key to understanding the story of this place, which has, for years, fascinated the media. You will see Provence differently than you used to.
OUR CULTURAL INCENTIVE ACTIVITIES
ACTIVITIES « INTERACTIVE TOURS » BY ISY PROVENCE
WE DEVELOP AND BUILD WHAT WE APPRECIATE AND ADMIRE. I’M AN AVID TRAVELLER AND THE FIRST TO INVEST IN A TOUR GUIDE WHEN VISITING A NEW PLACE. ALWAYS CHOOSING A TOUR WITH AN ORIGINAL TWIST, UNIQUE TO THE LOCATION.
Our tours are designed so that the visitor is involved and not just a bystander. Every 40 minutes or so, guests are immersed in a different universe: Savon de Marseille factory, a “pastissade”, a game of pétanque. Of course, our activities are enhanced constantly by the tour guide’s input.
Another unique feature of guided tours by ISY is our guides. They (primarily female, sorry guys) are chosen for their knowledge and adaptability. Telling stories rather than facts and figures, tailoring their words to the professional profile of the guests. Most importantly, they can adapt because often the timing we initially give them is different from the definitive one. Are you running late? We’ve got you!
ACTIVITIES « STREET ART » BY ISY PROVENCE
MARSEILLE ISN’T EXACTLY KNOWN FOR ITS STREET ART, AND YET FOR SOME YEARS NOW (ESPECIALLY SINCE 2013, WHEN MARSEILLE WAS THE EUROPEAN CAPITAL OF CULTURE), THE CITY HAS BEEN CULTIVATING AN IMPRESSIVE STREET ART SCENE. Represented by many different styles.
Two happening neighbourhoods are now looking like outdoor museums. Belonging to no one, accessible to everyone, and cannot be bought. Our guides will share its story with your guests in the most captivating way. Even those who aren’t necessarily art lovers will be touched. Discovering one of our historic spots; is truly an experience.
ACTIVITIES « ARTISTIC ENCOUNTERS » BY ISY PROVENCE
SOME ACTIVITIES ARE DRIVEN SOLELY BY MARKET DEMAND. OURS ARE CHOSEN FOR THEIR SOMETHING SPECIAL.
Some encounters leave us spellbound… Sharing the beauty of art… Communicating and interacting with the artists. We are seeing, listening, and learning.
We are learning about our culture through art and the different landscapes depicted. Discover the Vieux Port’s unique atmosphere, then visit the Mucem, an exceptional architectural masterpiece. IF YOU ENJOY ART, THESE ARTISTIC, UNIQUE EXPERIENCES WILL TRULY MOVE YOU.
Our added value lies, once again, in the knowledge of our region. We are always on the lookout for new places and new talent for you to discover. Through our contacts with friends, work connections and personal lives, we follow the slightest lead, the most atypical profile always looking to fit the objectives of our cultural incentive activities.
I WANT TO POINT OUT THAT OUR INSIGHTS COME NOT ONLY FROM OUR CONTACTS AND EXPERTISE BUT ALSO FROM WHAT YOU HAVE IN MIND. THIS MIX OF ELEMENTS WILL MAKE THE INCENTIVE WE CREATE TOGETHER A REAL SUCCESS.
