Experience a Miniature France on Marvellous Private Tours of Marseille

Marseille is a culinary paradise that features the rustic, hearty preferences of land and ocean.  Not far from La Vieille Charite, in the Panier district, Le Panier des Arts provides a wonderous menu of local delicacies. 

On the opposite bank, the iconic Les Arcenaulx, as well as La Cote de Boeuf, are two eateries where typical Marseille cuisine isn't just served but glorified. 

The coast road attributes such excellent eateries as the Chez Aldo, Chateaux de Marseille, Le Petit Nice as well as the Chez Michel.

A popular guided tour of the Notre Dame de la Garde called La Bonne Mere by the locals who believe it offers protection for the sailors on their hazardous journeys. 

The La Canebiere is the city's most famed road and the Quartier du Panier is the region of Marseille that's richest in tradition and history. 

Another must see the place is the 5th century Abbaye de Saint Victor that will be kept in unusually good condition considering it is going on 1600 years old. 

Your travel agent will show that no holiday is complete without going for a tour of one of many museums, five of that are Musée des Beaux-Arts, Musée Grobet-Labadie, Muséum d'Histoire Naturelle, Musée de la Mode as well as Musée Cantini.

Top 10 Things to Do in Marseille

Le Vieux Dock
1 This really is an ancient port where one can see the fisherman reel in their catch of the day ready to be sold by auction sale, enjoy superb seafood, or perhaps rent a motorboat for the day. Or maybe if you’d rather just sit at the waterfront cafe with a coffee and pastry and watch the expensive yachts drive into the harbour.
Le Cours Julien
2 That is known by everyone as the most fashionable area of Marseille, which is heaving with bookstores, bars, fountains, as well as a lot of shopping areas. Each and every Thursday and Saturday morning, the Plaine marketplace takes place right here. Ideal chance to purchase great souvenirs at rock bottom prices in your Marseille guided tour.
Barely Recreation area
3 An attractive park 1,000 feet up from the deep blue sea. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city pop here to chill out with a picnic and a good book. Plenty of restaurants and cafes if you don't fancy packing a picnic. It's an ideal place to relax away from the crowds. Grab a drink, take a deep breath and relax!
Notre Dame de la Garde
4 Known as the large church; this Christian church overlooks the town, the local fishermen go here to get their boats blessed. The church is beautifully restored and is an architect's dream building. Worth a visit while you are here in the town. Dress appropriately while entering. Guided tours are available.
The Château D'If
5 This small Mediterranean  Castle just off the urban centre was a penal colony. It actually is simplified from the novel by Alexandre Dumas, Le Comte de Monte-Cristo. It is worth a sightseeing tour to view this beautiful place. The views are fantastic, and you can see the visitor yachts drive away from the Ancient Harbor below.
Fort St. Nicolas
6 Constructed between 1660-1665, this fort was utilised to help with the security of the dock of Marseille. These days it really is divided into two pieces. Beyond the fort to the north-west is the Recreation area of the Pharo. It is a fabulous place to walk around the old fort and great photograph opportunities. A sightseeing tour is available to book and you will gain more knowledge by the guide.
Le Panier
7 This really is the most ancient spot in Marseille as well as in French it is name implies “the basket.” Whenever you are right here in your Marseille sightseeing tours, make sure to look at the Vielle Charite, an ancient monument that right now has museums and also exhibitions.
Palais de Longchamp
8 This is a peaceful, open public garden in the middle of Marseille that dates back in the mid-19th century. This place has some beautiful scenery, the beautiful fountain was built in celebration of a canal being built from Durance into downtown Marseille and makes a beautiful place to go sightseeing.
Vieille Charite
9 Currently host to a museum, this structure was initially designed in the 17th century mainly as a place for the homless, ill, as well as aged folks. The building is amazing—there is a Pantheon-like Christian church along with a three-story building.
Mazargues Warfare Cemetery
10 On the road to Luminy, you’ll discover this cemetery, that is designed for martyrs from the WWI and then WWII Allied countries. This area is quite serene — ideal for reflection as well as some downtime.
