A scenic drive will take you along the Old Harbour to the Corniche. Enjoy the stunning views of the craggy coves and little beaches tucked away along the coastline; spot the spooky Château d’If, the former city’s penal colony and the famous jail of the Count of Monté Cristo of French writer, Alexandre Dumas.

Winding your way round one of Europe’s oldest cities, admire the Cathedral de la Major, a huge and extravagant construction started in the 19th century in a Neo-Byzantine style. View the gilded statue of the Virgin and Child housed over the bell tower of the Basilica Notre-Dame de la Garde, perched high above the city of Marseille.

A stop will be made along the seaside promenade, near the Prado beaches. Relax and enjoythe warm sea breezes, take a quick dip, or stroll the promenade and stop for a drink in one of the beach-front cafés.
