Our journey starts at the beautiful old port of Marseille, from where we enter the oldest neighbourhood in France, the “Le Panier”. Going through Marseille monuments, you’ll see the new Hotel Dieu, which opened for the “Marseille Provence 2013” event, during which Marseille was labelled as the European capital of culture.
Through the ascent of Accoules, our guide will lead you to the “Place des Moulins” and will tell you about its magnificent history along with answering your questions. The tour finishes at the “Le Panier” district, only a few steps away from the Mucem museum, the new icon of Marseille, which is the most visited place in the city, thanks to the modern architecture linked to the Fort St. Jean. This monument presently offers many beautiful exhibitions and shows. This tour will help you to understand and witness the modernization process that has been taking place in Marseille since the last few years.
It will be our pleasure to tell you everything about other Marseille tours you may enjoy, more Marseille monuments to visit, the Calanques National Park, Marseille nightlife to find the best Marseille bars and pubs and what to see and do during your stay !

Ezekiel was an amazing tour guide. We wandered through the Old Port and the oldest parts of Marseille and he had fascinating knowledge and a passion for the architecture and history that was infectious. We also took in some of the key areas of regeneration from the City of Culture, and Eze had all the attractions in his bank of facts. Would highly recommend this tour!!
