Tour description

Marseille, the capital of Provence, is France’s oldest city. Always shifting between myth and reality, it is also without a doubt one of the most charming and historically fascinating cities in the country. However, stereotypes and reputation have made Marseille the underrated city it is today. With our Free Tour, we hope to break prejudices by approaching its impressive history in a pleasant, professional and, above all, exciting manner. The setting of the old Marseille will give us the perfect framework to introduce you to its history. From Julius Caesar to the Inquisition, the Marseillais mafia and World War II, we guarantee a two and a half hour journey across time that is essential to understand this charming but complex Mediterranean city.
