Where you'll be

From the Old Port, we will follow it on its southern part to reach the sea. We will spend some time on the waterfront, going to look for some typical small fishing ports as well as hidden coves. Drenched in sea air, we will cross quiet parks and alleys to climb to Notre Dame de la Garde, and after having contemplated the city from up there, we will go back quietly to the Old Port through the beautiful districts of the city center.
