CITY CENTER HILLS
deep in the green lung
Let’s go for a 13-kilometer urban hike, resolutely sporty, deep inside the green lung of Marseille. This is favorite hike of Marseille's people. Just on the outskirts of the hyper center, close to everything and at the same time far from the tumult of the boulevards, I will guide you through these hills in the city. Take a deep breath in and out enjoying the breathtaking sceneries and going through the fascinating history of Marseille.
We will visit unknown but wonderful districts: they are difficult to reach with any transport other than on foot, preserved from urban gigantism, they have as many trees as buildings and are home to many mansions and small castles showing all the splendor and the architectural wealth of the 19th and 20th centuries. We do sports to get the reward of contemplate the city.
The numerous passages and stairs to go up and down make us surf Marseille to the rhythm of its valleys, buttes and hills, make us dive into the heart of small village centers and old fishing ports, then climb back up the ridges to enjoy exceptional views.
An introduction to the diversity of Marseille's urban forms, its history and its geography, off the beaten tracks, during a privileged moment.
