What to expect

Discover the oldest district called "Le Panier" walking along the Old Port where you will learn why Marseille was a strategic place for the Greeks to build a city. You will see the Old Charity, a former hospital providing for the destitute people and the Cathedral La Major with its uncommon Byzantine architecture designed by Esperandieu.

You'll pass by the MUCEM (Musée des Civilisations d'Europe et de Méditerranée), a modern building that contrasts with the old architecture of the rest of the district. The museums displays many permanent or temporary exhibitions (entrance tickets are not included). From there, you'll enjoy a great view point on Fort St Jean and Fort St Nicolas which stood proudly at the entrance of the Old Port.

The tour ends with a glass of wine (included) on the terrace of the MUCEM with spectacular view on the Mediterranean sea.
