Tour description provided by Viator

See top Marseille attractions including Palais du Pharo (Napoleon’s Palace) and Notre-Dame de la Garde from an electric bike as your local guide shares the long and colorful history of one of Europe’s oldest cities. Explore hidden areas most tourists don’t know about, see picturesque ports, and marvel at sublime views of the Mediterranean Sea. Riding an electric bike allows you, your family and your friends to cover plenty of ground without getting tired, so you can see the best of this dynamic coastal town with ease.

This small-group tour is limited to eight people for a more intimate experience.

Begin your small-group electric bike tour of one of the oldest cities in Europe at the historic Old Port (Vieux Port) in central Marseille. Your deluxe electric bike requires much less pedaling than a standard bike, so you can explore the city with ease. Plus, attachable baby seats and trailers make this an activity the whole family can enjoy.

Throughout your trip, your native guide will share anecdotes about Marseille's rich heritage and show you secret streets and places only locals know about. You may even get the chance to see the locals playing their favorite game, pétanque, which is a type of boules and similar to bocce.

Ride up to Palais du Pharo (Napoleon's Palace), where you’ll take in lovely views of Marseille and the Old Port. Marvel at Notre-Dame de la Garde, a stunning Catholic basilica that towers over the city, and see the ancient Abbey of St Victor.

Follow the Corniche du Président John F Kennedy (Corniche Kennedy), a coastal road with fantastic views of the Mediterranean Sea. Soak up the quaint atmosphere as you cruise by the picturesque fishing village of Vallon des Auffes and the small, rocky bay known as Anse de Malmousque.

If you choose the 4-hour tour option, see all of these sights plus the historic city center and the narrow alleyways and colorful buildings of Le Panier, the oldest neighborhood in Marseille. Visit Marseille Cathedral, a national monument of France, and ride around the glittering glass Museum of the Civilisations of Europe and the Mediterranean (MuCEM).

You will have plenty of opportunities to capture amazing photos throughout your tour. There will also be a break for a drink or lunch (own expense). Your leisurely electric bike tour concludes at its starting point in central Marseille.
