From the Old Port, where everything began 600 years before Christ, Marseille reveals all its beauty... Ride along the most beautiful bay in the world ! Then reach the spectacular site of Notre-Dame de la Garde, admire the golden ceiling mosaics of the basilica and enjoy the 360° sight on the city and its islands ! Discover the Old Town of Marseille known as the oldest quarter of France. We will take you to the Cathedral of the Major to admire its architecture contrasting with the MuCEM, National Museum dedicated to Mediterranean cultures. Enter the Euro-Mediterranean area, the result of the largest operation of Urban Renewal in Southern Europe. The tour ends on the Old Port, which became in 2013 the largest pedestrian esplanade of Europe. Embark on an original sightseeing tour with complete audio commentaries in 8 languages (French, English, Chinese, Russian, German, Portuguese, Spanish, Italian) to discover the main landmarks of Marseille.

We visited Marseilles during a Shore Excursion provided by the Royal Caribbean, it was amazing. We loved Marseilles, its a fishing village,with very beautiful mountains, I loved their small harbor area which is full of restaurants and happening.
