Overview of the tour in Marseille

The fierce Marseille is France’s oldest city. Its 26 centuries of history has made it one of the richest and most distinctive places in the country. The Greeks, Romans, Gauls and barbarian tribes, Saracen pirates, the Mafia, Napoleon, and the Nazis, have all left their mark in the city’s long history.
Our response to so many centuries of adventures and misfortunes is the Free Walking Tour Marseille. During approximately 2 h 30 min, we offer you an indispensable introduction to help you get to know the city of Marseille, it's past and present, but above all, its personality that makes it truly unique. Join us in this flashback that will reveal the strange laws that ruled the ancient Greek Massalia, the Provence of Nostradamus during the black plague, the continuous arrival of immigrants to the multicultural Le Panier, and the destruction caused by Nazi Germany.
