A visit of Marseille to discover the city: the Old Port and the Borély Park.
This itinerary is a stroll among the most emblematic places of the city of Marseille. We start from the Old Port, access is easy by public transport (metro, bus, train, tram...). The TGV station is only 15 minutes away on foot. Then we continue towards the park Borély, the distance being important we will take the bus which goes along all the cornice. Marseille has been the capital of European culture for a year and the city centre has been transformed, for example with the MuCEM - Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilizations. This is a good thing, but unfortunately it does not transform mentalities. Marseille is not yet a great tourist city and the tourist is often badly considered (to say the least). It is simply unacceptable.
In these pedestrian streets right next to the Old Port there are many restaurants. There are many fish restaurants that offer the emblematic dish of the city: the bouillabaisse (fish soup).
It is possible to take a bus along the seafront to reach the Prado beach from the Vieux-Port. The bus route along the corniche allows you to discover the whole seafront of Marseille.
