Enjoy the best of Marseille from the comfort of your coach, and spend a little time relaxing on the beach.
A scenic drive will take you along the Old Harbour to the Corniche. Enjoy the stunning views of the craggy coves and little beaches tucked away along the coastline, spot the spooky Château d’If, the city’s penal colony in a bygone era.
Winding your way round one of Europe’s oldest cities, admire the Cathedral de la Major, a huge and extravagant construction started in the 19th century in Neo-Byzantine style. View the gilded statue of the Virgin and Child housed over the bell tower of the Basilica Notre-Dame de la Garde, perched high above the city of Marseille.
A stop will be made along the seaside promenade, near the Prado beaches. Relax and enjoy the warm sea breezes, take a quick dip, or stroll the promenade and stop for a drink in one of the many beach-front cafés.
Note: There will be around two hours of free time at the promenade and walking is at guests’ discretion. Please remember swimwear and a towel if wishing to swim during free time. Euro currency is required for local purchases. Before you book this excursion, you must refer to the ‘Beach / Water Related’ paragraph under the Guide to Symbols in this brochure.
