MARSEILLE - La Cité PHOSÉENNE
The Mediterranean capital !
Visit Marseille, the oldest city in France, founded about 2600 years ago by Greeks from Phocée (in Asia Minor).
With this day you will discover this wonderful city.
On the programme are :
- Our Lady of the Guard,
Affectionately called Good Mother by the Marseilles, the basilica is the emblem of the Phocean city and which proudly sits on top of the Hill of the Guard.
The courtyard offers an exceptional view of the city and the sea !
- Les Goudes,
An impression of the end of the world emerges from this mythical place of the Phocean city with its small fishing port. It is a picturesque and authentic setting at the gates of the calanque with a spectacular and striking view.
- The Old Port,
It is the heart of Marseilles and Marseilles. The huge harbour is a natural harbour where the Greek founders of the city arrived 2,600 years ago. the Old Port is very largely pedestrian, large esplanades allow beautiful walks.
- Fort Saint Jean and Mucem,
Between the contemporary architecture of the Mucem and the pink stone of Fort Saint-Jean, this visit is the occasion of a journey through the history of Marseille.
The two architectural complexes are connected by a bridge from 78 meters to 19 meters high above the water.
