What you'll do

Resolutely turned towards the 3rd millennium, Marseille fascinates by its contrasts.
This itinerary will make you discover a city like no other by crossing the different eras that shaped it.
Euroméditerranée's ultra-modern buildings, the narrow streets and shaded squares of the Panier, its historic heart, the Joliette and its treasures, you will be seduced by its Provençal way of life.
Marseille is also an atmosphere that you will appreciate in the Old Port.
A meeting place for locals and visitors, it has a giant mirrored canopy that is much appreciated on hot summer days.
The selfies head in the air under its huge mirror ceiling are part of the folklore of this futuristic stainless-steel structure.
Embark for a stroll in a surprising Marseille, marked by centuries and which leaves no one indifferent.
Other things to note
This tour is available in French, English and Spanish. The tour ends in Euromed, close to public transport (tramway, bus, metro). Not accessible to people with reduced mobility due to the stairs in the historic centre.

We are 2 qualified guides, animated by the same passion...Marseille ! Valérie : born in Marseille, I was rocked by its stories and the singing of cicadas. Having lived all over the world, I loved guiding family and friends through my adopted cities. Sébastien : Marseille opened its heart to me when I was 14 years old. My professional life has taken me away from it for several years. I have always enjoyed offering discovery walks in my adopted cities. Back in Marseille, we both obtained a professional title of tour guide. We will make you discover a Marseille of stories, curiosities and hidden places little known or not known by tourists and sometimes even by the people of Marseille ! A metamorphosing Marseille, in full renewal composed of new concepts.

Sebastian was an amazing guide through the various areas of Marseille; providing great insight into not only the various buildings' architectural features but their history as well. Sebastian was also very knowledgable about each neighborhoods' history and the inhabitants of the various neighborhoods. A highly recommend tour that provides valuable insights into the history of Marseille.
