Overview
A hop-on hop-off sightseeing tour of Marseille is a great way to get a flavor of this beautiful french city steeped in history. Tour the Vieux-Port and soak up the charm of Marseille life with its many restaurants, fishermen's stalls and daily fish market.

Explore the pretty fishing port, Vallon des Auffes and stroll alongside small, brightly colored boats and numerous seashore cabins before wandering through the picturesque narrow streets. This unique, peaceful place sheltered by cliffs has inspired many poets, painters and writers.

Great for the savvy traveler, this pass allows you to get to the best attractions Marseille has to offer, including the striking Notre-Dame de la Garde, situated high on a hill that overlooks the entire city. And be sure you don't miss Chateau d'If, the castle that inspired scenes from Alexandre Dumas's novel The Count of Monte Cristo.
Highlights
  • See all the Marseilles sights on a double-decker bus tour
  • Hop on and hop off wherever you want—and as often as you’d like
  • Cover 25 historical and cultural Marseilles sights in a single ride
  • Listen to audio commentary in eight languages
What to Expect
Start your Marseille hop-on hop-off sightseeing tour at whichever stop you prefer, choosing to sit on the open top deck or the enclosed lower deck. 25 stops are spread throughout the city, from towering, cathedral-lined hills to teeming fish markets along the water. Get a front-row peek at colorful boats bobbing along the piers and the centuries-old castle that once inspired Alexandre Dumas. Buses arrive about every 30 minutes, and recorded commentary is available in eight different languages, enriching your visit with anecdotes about the under-the-radar French port city. End the double-decker tour wherever you wish.

We were there in April. It was “shoulder” season, much like October. Crowds were not overwhelming but the city was not overwhelmingly either, except for the cathedral. If you haven’t been to Aix-en-Provence, consider that... More
