Meals not included
Visit Marseille from top to bottom without having to walk, as you will be seated in comfort on the upper deck of an open coach.
On a panoramic drive through town you will hear a commentary through an individual headphone. You'll see Le Vieux Port or Old Port, where the Greeks landed in 600 BC, but today the cafés, boats and restaurants are classically French. Continue to Vallon des Auffes -- a tiny port tucked away in an idyllic spot.
Enjoy a photo stop at the Notre Dame de la Garde Basilica, built in the mid-1800s in Roman-Byzantine style. This church is one of the most magnificent buildings of Marseille. You will have a half-hour of free time here to admire the scenery and take in the local ambience.
At the end of the tour, you will be dropped off at the ship shuttle location. Guests who wish to stay in town to shop or explore independently are welcome to do so, but must make their own way back to the ship.
Participants must be able to walk up a staircase to access the open-air upper deck. The tour is narrated by audio-guide (not a live presentation). There are 20 inside seats on the double-decker coach and 50 outdoor seats.
