Day trip

Beware the bus runs both ways around the harbour area, although a small loop around cathedral before going back. Good commentary and ok music between stops. Stayed on until up the hill. Choose to walk down as just missed the bus. Queue was much smaller...More

Find another way if you can

They sell you tickets promising a bus every 30 minutes. We are still waiting 1 hour later and no bus. The only bus that arrived had little room and they allowed people to sneak in through the rear doors and didn't ask them to leave...More

Simplifies your overview of Marseille but rather bog standard

So yes you see all the main sites without walking in the blistering heat. Tick. But.....don't expect a friendly driver or air conditioning on the bus. Do expect to get up from your plastic seats with wet clothes.

Great way to see the sights of Marseille which are fantastic

You need to buy a ticket first, the ticket office is just across the road from the bus stop. It is €19 per day, or €22 for a 2 day pass, they offer a small discount for over 60s but only on the one day...More

It definitely stops at Vieaux port as that is central to the city but I don’t know about Aix. As far as I know Aix de Provence is another town so no it only travels around Marseille itself. Hope that helps
