  • Overview

    A hop-on-hop-off tour of Marseille is a great way to get a flavor of this beautiful French city steeped in history. Tour the Vieux-Port and soak up the charm of Marseilles life with its many restaurants, fishermen's stalls and daily fish market. Explore the pretty fishing port, Vallon des Auffes and stroll alongside small, brightly colored boats and numerous seashore cabins before wandering through the picturesque narrow streets. This unique, peaceful place sheltered by cliffs has inspired many poets, painters and writers. Explore Marseille with a multilingual commentary in eight languages.

    A halt at Borely Park is a great idea if you wish to spend some relaxing time with your family, away from the bustle of the city. You will come across winding waterways with ducks, swans and rowboats, including quiet little corners where narrow paths meander through thick foliage.
