Discovery Marseille Tour

& visit to mucem

As European Capital of Culture in 2013, Marseille offers a rich and diverse heritage. From the Panier district to the small fishing port of Vallon des Auffes, via the Old Port and the not-to-be-missed Notre-Dame de la Garde, explore all the facets of Marseille’s culture and heritage!

To explore Marseille with ease, our “Discovery Tour Marseille” panoramic bus tour is a great option. It allows you to get around easily and enjoy a breathtaking view of the city, while being able to get on and off the bus as you please.

Since its inauguration in June 2013, the building designed by Rudy Ricciotti (in association with Roland Carta) has been one of the symbols of the new face of Marseille. This mineral cube – a perfect square measuring 72 metres on each side – is encircled by a fine concrete mesh, a strong visual signature that has helped to elevate the Mucem to the status of an internationally recognised “world object”.

J4 is the real “heart” of Mucem, hosting the major permanent and temporary exhibitions, as well as regular cycles and highlights of the artistic and cultural programme.
