Private Half-Day of Marseille

This private tour is perfect for all ages and mobility levels, as you will enjoy a guided city tour with your local, knowledgeable and friendly host.

Discover the city of Marseille and see the old port and historical center. The old port, Vieux Port, is the true heartbeat of this medieval town where small boats moor next to yachts. Going uphill is where the old Le Panier neighborhood is located, the oldest section of the city.

Observe the Palais Longchamp (Water Castle), built in 1869 to bring water from the Durance river to Marseille. The Palais Longchamp is a monument in the 4th arrondissement of Marseille, France. It houses the Mus�e des beaux-arts and Mus�um d'histoire naturelle de Marseille. The surrounding Longchamp Park is listed by the French Ministry of Culture as one of the Notable Gardens of France.

View the iconic Basilica of Notre Dame de la Garde (called la Bonne Mère). Built in the Roman-Byzantine style in 1864, it replaced the old chapel with the same name. This Catholic basilica in Marseille is one of the city's best-known symbols and most visited. It is also the site of a popular Assumption Day pilgrimage.

Finally, at the end of your time in Marseille, your private guide will drive you back to your cruise terminal and ship in Toulon.
