In an ideal location overlooking the Mediterranean, Marseille has a wealth of art, history and food. It has attracted visitors for centuries but with a tour, you will gain an exclusive insight into Marseille and its unique identity.
You will start at the Cathedrale de la Major, a huge Byzantine-Roman style cathedral. Take in its antiquated architecture and even look inside and be intrigued by the religious symbols and Roman-Catholic history. Moving parallel to the Mediterranean you will reach the Vieux-Port of Marseille, where settlers first arrived in 600BC. The Vieux-Port may be ancient but it is still a bustle with activity. You can stop and ponder over the views, learn of the port’s history or sample fresh fish in the markets.
Street art & vistas
From the port, you will walk to the Cours Julien. In stark contrast to the simplistic natural beauty of Marseille, this lively area is awash with vibrant street art and an iridescent atmosphere. You will then take a taxi to the Notre-Dame de la Garde, a church towering over Marseille. While the church is itself impressive, you will be struck by the panoramic views of Marseille and will have a chance to sit and relax while taking it in. You will then be dropped by a taxi back down into the city centre, where your guide can leave you with advice on where to shop or eat.
