Marseille Shore Excursion: Marseille Hop-On Hop-Off Tour

Discover beautiful Marseille by bus on a 1.5-hour full-route tour (without stops) of the city’s main attractions. Disembark your cruise ship at the Marseille Port and enjoy a light 20-minute stroll the Old Port (Vieux Port), the first ‘hop on’ location on the tour.

With your 1- or 2-day pass, hop on and off the double-decker bus at any of the route’s locations. (Tour stops listed below) As you ride, learn about Marseille’s history, from its original Greek settlement in 600 BC and decline during the rein of Julius Caesar, to its rebirth in the 10th century and its present-day distinction as a cultural melting pot. Take your time catching views of Marseille’s patchwork rooftops
and the vibrant coastline from Notre Dame de la Garde, exploring the Old Port of Marseille (Vieux Port) – an active port for 26 centuries! – or admiring Fort Saint Jean at the port entrance, built by Louis XIV in 1660. For fans of Alexandre Dumas, don’t miss the snapshot views of gorgeous Chateau d’If, the setting of several scenes in The Count of Monte Cristo. Between stops, stroll Marseille’s narrow alleyways and colorful Mediterranean seaside, soaking up the rich and diverse character of this historic port town.

To end your tour, disembark at the Old Port for the 20-minute return walk to the cruise port. Please allow yourself sufficient time to ensure your timely return to the port. This excursion is NOT covered by our worry-free policy.

This tour was lovely!! We got off and on several times, and enjoyed the tour very much! It was

Very nice island. Would like to go back there and roam around for a few weeks. Bus tour was excellent in that it covered a lot of area and exposed us to the many of the areas worth visiting in detail someday.

Great way to get from the hotel to the Airport only had to wait 10 mins for the taxi while a delivery cleared the jetty. The communications from the tour operator arrived the day before as scheduled. We had another little tour around the grand canal while we picked up other's and then over to the Airport.
