Your morning starts with an 8am pickup by air-conditioned minivan in central Aix-en-Provence. After the drive out of town, travel to Marseille’s Old Port — where traditional fishing boats bob on the waves.
Discover top attractions such as the Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilisations (entrance tickets not included) and the Ombrière monument, and listen as your guide shines a light on Marseille’s rich history.
Explore diverse corners of the city including the New Town and the Joliette district — once a commercial docking area and today lined with stylish bars, boutiques, and cafes.
Afterward, spin onward along the Corniche roads to the 19th-century Notre-Dame de la Garde basilica — widely considered to be Marseille’s most impressive landmark. Admire the fine Byzantine-style architecture you find, and enjoy panoramic views over Marseille to the Frioul Islands.
When your time at the basilica comes to an end, return in comfort to your departure point in central Aix-en-Provence to conclude your tour.
