Explore the Best of Marseille, Past and Present
Meet your English speaking guide in front of Marseille town hall. This walking guided tour will allow you to discover one of the oldest districts of the Phocean City. You will have the opportunity to walk along the Old Port, where you will gain a better understanding of why Marseille was a strategic place for the Greeks to build a city. You will see the Old Charity, a former hospital for the poorest people. You will walk in front of the Cathedral La Major, which will surprise you with its uncommon Byzantine architecture designed by Esperandieu. Let’s not forget the MUCEM, which contrasts with the old architecture of the rest of the district. The Musée des Civilisations d’Europe et de Méditerranée offers numerous permanent or temporary exhibitions (entrance tickets are not included). Admire both Fort St Jean and Fort St Nicolas which stood proudly at the entrance of the Old Port. Enjoy a glass of wine (included) on the terrace of the MUCEM offering a beautiful view on the Mediterranean sea.
