Get a taste of France’s second-largest city with stops at its fish market, old port, and centuries-old cathedrals, with unlimited options to hop on and hop off. Expect plenty of photo-ops as Marseille overlooks the blue waters of the Mediterranean.

  • See all the Marseilles sights on a double-decker bus tour
  • Hop on and hop off wherever you want—and as often as you’d like

  • Listen to audio commentary in eight languages
What to Expect
Start your Marseille hop-on hop-off sightseeing tour at whichever stop you prefer, choosing to sit on the open top deck or the enclosed lower deck. 25 stops are spread throughout the city, from towering, cathedral-lined hills to teeming fish markets along the water. Get a front-row peek at colorful boats bobbing along the piers and the centuries-old castle that once inspired Alexandre Dumas. Buses arrive about every 30 minutes, and recorded commentary is available in eight different languages, enriching your visit with anecdotes about the under-the-radar French port city. End the double-decker tour wherever you wish.
