Sites to see in Marseille with your private guide
Marseille was founded all the way back in 600 BC by ancient Greek sailors, and over the course of the following centuries, it has developed a Mediterranean culture quite distinct from the rest of France.
This is perhaps most pronounced in the city’s old town, a picturesque neighborhood just a short walk from the Vieux Port which we would describe as an essential visit for anyone seeking to understand the city and its heritage on your private tour.
Amongst the most famous landmarks is the spectacular Notre Dame de la Garde Cathedral sitting iconically atop a hill overlooking the city and staring out to the sea. Read more about the Cathedral below and find out about the other must-see locations to include in your private tour.
