Marseille Shore Excursion: Half Day Tour of Marseille by Electric Bike
US$ 66.58
Overview
Spend your time in port in Marseille exploring with ease by electric bike on this 4-hour cycling tour. Spin through the city streets with a guide, and discover top attractions such as Notre Dame de la Garde basilica and the Palais du Pharo. Enjoy panoramic French Riviera views along the pretty Corniche Kennedy, and visit traditional ports including the Vallon des Auffes. Along the way, explore the ancient Panier neighborhood and new Joliette district, and gain insight into centuries of centuries of rich maritime history.
What to Expect
When your cruise ship docks in Marseille, meet your guide at the cruise terminal between 9:30am and 10:40am. Then, transfer to the Marseille port and hop onto your electric bicycle to begin your 4-hour cycling tour.

Spin through the city streets and take in top attractions including the Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilizations, the old port, and the Palais du Pharo — built in 1858 by Napoleon III. Explore the Vallon des Auffes — a traditional port outside the city — and listen as your guide sheds light on Marseille’s rich history.

Cycle along the Corniche Kennedy — widely considered among the most beautiful roads in Marseille — and stop along the way for panoramic coastal views. With your electric bike to help with the hills, you need much less peddle power to get around.

Visit the Notre Dame de la Garde basilica and gaze out over the rooftops of Marseille from your vantage point on the high hillside. Then, delve into diverse neighborhoods including the historic Panier district and the newer Joliette district — once an industrial hub.

When your 4-hour cycling tour comes to an end, drop your bike off and return to the cruise terminal to conclude your ride.

Worry-free Shore Excursion:
We will ensure your timely return to the Marseille port for this activity. In the rare event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. If your ship is delayed and you are unable to attend this activity, your money will be refunded. See our terms and conditions for full details.

The tour definitely includes plenty of rest stops and the tour guide was wealth of information at each stop. The bike requires pedaling to generate power. The power assist makes the work much easier, though.
