What To Expect
First, cruise to the Palais du Pharo (Napoleon's Palace), the 18th-century coastal mansion that stands like a sentinel at the entry of the Old Port. Admire the bustling waterway before heading inland to view Notre-Dame de la Garde, a Neo-Byzantine Catholic basilica that rises from Marseille’s highest point, and the Abbey of Saint Victor. Continue through the ambient Le Panier quarter, Marseille’s oldest neighborhood. Coast through picturesque lanes and under terraced houses strung with clotheslines and pass by Marseille Cathedral, a French national monument.
Next head to the Corniche du Président John F Kennedy (Corniche Kennedy) for a leisurely ride along the sun-kissed coastal road. Along the way, pedal past scenes of French life such as locals playing pétanque – a popular bocce-style game – and fishermen working in the village of Vallon des Auffes and the quaint cove Anse de Malmousque. Capture great photos and hear intriguing stories of Marseille’s long history from your savvy guide. You’ll also have a chance to stop for refreshments (own expense) before returning to the port to re-board your ship.
