Highlights of Marseilles Accesible Cruise Excursion

Highlights of Marseilles Accessible Cruise ExcursionVisit the oldest city in France on this 6 hour Marseilles accessible cruise excursion that visits Notre Dame de la Garde, Fort-Saint-Jean and the beautiful fishing village of Cassis. This tour also offers a unique accessible wine tasting experience!

Marseilles is a 2600 year old city situated on the picturesque Mediterranean coast. Its long history is rich with art and culture, and this accessible tour explores the past and present of this ancient port city that has withstood the test of time.

Your guide and driver will pick you up in a wheelchair accessible van from the cruise terminal to begin your accessible Marseilles cruise excursion.

Accompanied by your guide, you will  drive up to the highest point in Marseilles, where the Notre Dame de la Garde is located. This massive Catholic basilica sits high above the city and can be seen for miles. Because of this, you will have the best view in the city from here, and the chance to take some wonderful photos of Marseilles! Your guide will also take you to Fort SaintJean, a fortification in Marseilles, built in 1660 by Louis XIV at the entrance to the Old Port.

In the small fishing village of Cassis, surrounded by white limestone cliffs, umbrella pines and vineyards descending directly into the sea, you will have opportunities to visit outdoor markets and shops, and walk/roll along the little port area where pastel houses and colorful wooden fishing boats create a great scenery for beautiful pictures. 

Before returning back to the cruise terminal in Marseilles, you will get to experience a memorable authentic Provence wine tasting experience.
