About the tour

In this FreeTour, we will show you the Marseilles Marseille. That where the luxury of the colonial era and the splendor of the empire mingle with the heartbreaking stories of the Algerian war and the violence of the Marseilles mafia. This part of the city is the most unknown and, nevertheless, it is the one that houses its most impressive monuments for its history and for its visual beauty. We will begin knowing the Opera de Marseille and the great avenue of La Canebière and then enter the intricacies of an ancient but alive city: the indispensable market of Capuchins, the monumental Préfecture or the church of Reformés are just some of the monuments that we will show. The perfect finish of the tour will be the artistic marvel of the Palais Longchamp whose visit is irreplaceable and will not leave anyone indifferent. In two and a half hours of the tour the greatness of Marseille awaits you! Do not miss it!

Hicimos un Tour con David por Le Panier. Encantados con su manera de contar y sus conocimientos sobre la ciudad. Repetiriamos sin dudarlo con el. Muchas gracias

El tour con David ha sido excelente: super amable, atento, nos ha explicado la ciudad de Marsella al detalle, se nota que le apasiona el tema, y le hemos dado una buena propina (y eso que somos catalanes). Muy recomendable!
