Discover the surprising charms of Marseilles and the quaint fishing village of Cassis with a private tour of the sultry Mediterranean coastline. Blessed with a wealth of cultural heritage, France´s second largest sea port has been shaped by centuries-old influences that date back to the early Greeks and civilisations of Asia Minor and with a private tour around Marseilles and Cassis you will discover the remarkable architecture and learn about its mysterious and fascinating history.

Among its many alluring attractions, Marseilles enchanting Vieux Port guarded by two colossal forts is a captivating scene enhanced by the luxury yachts and sailing boats bobbing in the crystal marina. Admire the stunning architecture as we walk through the heart of the city to visit the Saint-Victor Abbey, a fascinating 5th Century crypt and former Hellenic burial ground. This very important site is still used today to celebrate Christian martyrs.

After exploring the catacombs of Saint-Victor the tour takes you up the hill to the church of Notre-Dame de la Garde where you will be rewarded with the most breathtaking views of Marseille together with its alluring coastline.

Weather permitting you can take a boat ride from Cassis to take a look at three Calanques, small fjords dwarfed by steep cliff walls that make for a dramatic scene.
