Full description
Hop-on the red route and explore the city of Marseille. A hop-on-hop-off sightseeing tour of Marseille is a great way to get a taste of this beautiful French city steeped in history. Tour the Vieux-port and soak up the charm of Marseille 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.

This pass allows you to get to the best attractions Marseille has to offer, including the striking Notre-Dame de la Garde, situated high on a hill that overlooks the entire city.

There are two lines( red+ blue) but we' ve been informed only the red one was available.It was a pity when we found out that last itinerary was at 13:25-13:30 so that we had to finish sightseeing till 14:00 .! It was unable that we could get off the bus to a museum and getting on to continue to next monument.It can' t work that way a hop- on/ hop- off bus...................we were not that lucky.......

I always enjoy hop on hop off as they give a good introduction to the city. Option of buying one or two lines I.e 2 days. While blue line not as long was still interesting but we used both lines on both days to take us around and revisit places of interest. Used printed document easy to exchange on harbour front . It would have been good to advise if vicinity as well as street name and postcode.
