Tour description provided by Viator

While in port in Marseille, enjoy a shore excursion to see the best sights of the city! Choose a one-day or two-day ticket and tour the oldest city in France on the Marseille Hop-On Hop-Off Tour. Sightsee at your own pace aboard an open-top, double-decker bus. Hop on and off as many times as you like at any of the 13 stops around the city to see top Marseille attractions, including Notre Dame de la Garde, the Marseille Old Port, Fort Saint Jean, museums and historical landmarks. Stop for a bite to eat at any of the exquisite restaurants in the city center.

With a choice of a one day or two day ticket, the Marseille Hop-On Hop-Off Tour is a great introduction to Marseille and the perfect way to discover the city.

When your cruise ship docks in Marseille, begin your sightseeing shore excursion through the city! The first stop on the hop-on hop-off bus tour is located just a 20-minute walk from the cruise port. Board the open-top, double-decker bus at the Old Port (Vieux Port) and hop on and off at any of the 13 stops along the route as many times as you like. See the best of Marseille at your own pace, and listen to the audio commentary and learn interesting facts and anecdotes about the ancient city.

Enjoy the vibrant character of Marseille, a city founded by the Greeks more than 2,600 years ago. Don't miss Notre Dame de la Garde, a beautiful church rising over Marseille’s rooftops that offers amazing views of the city and the Mediterranean coast. Visit Fort Saint Jean, the famous entrance to the Marseille Old Port built by Louis XIV in 1660, and watch the fishermen going about their daily business.

Discover even better views of Marseille's stunning Mediterranean coastline at Oriol Corniche, where you can see the magnificent Château d'If in the distance. Learn how Alexandre Dumas used this location as the base for several scenes in his famous book The Count of Monte Cristo.
