With this combined ticket, admire and discover Marseille’s must-see places on board our tourist buses and minibuses and access all the permanent and temporary exhibitions at the Mucem (J4 and Fort Saint-Jean).
Our Colorbüs + Mucem combined pass allows you to combine tourism and culture by visiting the city of Marseille and the Mucem – Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilizations on your own.
With almost 45,000 m² spread over three sites, the Mucem is a must-see in Marseille. It is located at the entrance to the port, on the J4 harbour mole and in Fort Saint-Jean: two places highly symbolic of the city’s current development and its age.
The Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilizations, the first major national museum dedicated to Mediterranean civilizations for the 21st century and directed by Bruno Suzzarelli, opened its doors in Marseille on 7 June 2013. It has quickly become one of the most visited museums in Marseille.
Your Pass gives you the opportunity to visit Marseille at your own pace. You can start your city tour at any of the stops located in the four corners of the city, by showing your e-ticket on your smartphone or on paper. You can then visit the districts, monuments and museums that interest you most. You can take your time to wander through the streets of Marseille, getting off wherever you like and getting back on the bus whenever you like.
Our advice: get a first impression of the city, walk around, choose the sites you want to explore in more detail and get off at the stop closest to the monuments and districts you plan to visit. Discover the incredible architecture of the Mucem, go shopping at the Terrasses du Port or Prado Shopping, enjoy a walk along the sea on the Corniche Kennedy or stop at Notre-Dame de la Garde and take a moment to enjoy the breathtaking view of the whole city!
All the secrets of the city will be revealed to you thanks to a quality audio guide offered on board our tourist buses.
Discover the city as the people of Marseille know it, full of authenticity and richness.

I found the concept quite interesting as it allows you to visit Marseille and its little-known but rich heritage for an interesting price. It also makes it easy to get around the city centre if necessary with a one or two day pass. I strongly recommend it especially for all those who think that there is nothing to visit in the Phocaean city and only know the OM when it comes to France’s second largest city.
Very pleasant, interesting and well organised visit, to be recommended
