The Full Tour of the french oldest city
Marseille, the second largest French city and the oldest one too, was founded 2600 years ago from a love story between a Greek sailor and a Ligurian princess.
Sightseeing in Marseille is a delight as the city is extremely photogenic.
Here, the mediterranean atmosphere is captivating.
Climbing up to the basilica "Notre-Dame de la Garde" is more than a pilgrimage, as the view from up there is breathtaking.
We will take time to stroll along the old port and the old quater and to see the traditional fish market.
We will drive along the coastal road Corniche JFK to enjoy at view point on the If Castle from The Comte of Monte Cristo and the picturesque fishermen port of Le Vallon des Auffes.
And we will stop at the Longchamp Palace and take time to see the modern district well known since Marseille was European capital of culture in 2013.
Let's have a lunch along the seashore.
As I was born in Marseille, I enjoy sharing my city and I really love hearing " I would never have expected Marseille to be so beautiful !

Thibault was a fabulous guide. Took us to the morning fish market and up the hills to the cathedral. He explained enough history of the area so we had an overall picture. A great restaurant along the water for lunch. Then to the old port for a little shopping. Excellent time with a great guide.
