Imagine a day where you you’ll spend a joyous morning boating on the Mediterranean Sea and the afternoon discovering the best of Marseille.
This is the “Between Land and Sea” tour!
Provence Amazing Tours offers a great day for you: the tour “Between Land and Sea” where in 8 hours you’ll discover the best of Marseille and its coastline.
Marseille and Provence count more than 300 days of sunshine per year so this tour will most likely be done under a clear, blue sky!
We’ll pick you up with a minivan and take you to the Vieux Port (Old Port) of Marseille to start the boat ride.
The boat will first head to the peaceful, rocky inlets of the Côte Bleue where you can swim and snorkel in the turquoise water (we have the gear).
Then, we’ll sail to the Frioul Islands and the Château d’If where we’ll make a stop at a small an quiet lagoon with transparent water.
Once anchored in a calanque, rocky inlets which are geographical marvels of the region, we’ll taste a local specialty on board the boat.
Next, we’ll boat along some of the most beautiful coastline to the “Baie des Singes” (Bay of Monkeys) and then head back to land at the Vieux Port, the very heart of Marseille!
After this sunny, sea escapade, we’ll hop in an air-conditioned minivan and drive up to the highest point in Marseille, Notre Dame de la Garde Basilica, for the amazing 360° view.
We’ll have a look inside then drive down to see the vestiges of Marseille’s past, enter the oldest bakery and visit a santons (figurines) workshop. Then, you’ll discover “Le Panier”, the oldest neighborhood in France. We’ll then take you back to our meeting point.
