Full description
Meet your guide in central Marseille, and set out on a walking tour of the city’s historic heart. From the meeting point walk along the sea before entering Le Panier neighbourhood, the oldest one in Marseille and in France. Pass by Marseille’s cathedral built in the 19th century, then your guide will lead you through the narrow and picturesque streets entirely painted by local artists. Inside this beautiful neighbourhood see La Vieille Charité and La Place des Moulins.
Learn about the foundation of Marseille and it 2.600 years of existence, the city’s oldest neighborhood, as you hear stories of Marseille through the centuries. Learn about the city’s Greek and Roman roots, the Renaissance era, and the years of the Enlightenment and the French Revolution.

At la Place de Lenche, you will have the chance of getting in touch with the local culture thanks to a delightful Navettes and chocolate tasting, two typical products made in Marseille.

Along the way, admire the 17th century Fort St. Jean that guards the Old Port, modern façade of the neighboring MUCEM, and see striking architecture such as the Cathédrale de la Major and Hotel Dieu. Learn more about the city’s most memorable monuments as you climb the Montée des Accoules and stroll around Place des Moulins. To end this tour, walk around Saint Laurent church, one of the oldest ones in the city with a great view over the Old Port and the Mucem.
