Enjoy the Mediterranean astmosphere with a local guide

Why must an excursion always be done in a rush?

Let's meet by the Major (closed on Tuesdays), a magnificent and Neo Bizantine style Cathedral where you will enjoy a pure Mediterranean atmosphere. From there we will take a local bus bringing us to the highest point in town: Notre Dame de la Garde Basilica with its stunning view.

During the second, more relaxed part of this tour, we will take the bus from the Basilica back to town, more precisely to the Old District of Le Panier where we will walk a short distance. Here you will enjoy the serenity of this place far from cars and certainly fall in love with front houses covered with warm colors, galleries set up by artists of any kind, linen hanging at windows, kids playing down the streets. . . We will have a stop on Place des Pistoles to enjoy some "Panisses" (local pancake made with chickpeas flour) and a homemade ice cream.
