Let’s go for a 14-kilometer urban hike, resolutely sporty, deep inside the green lung of Marseille. 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 practice sports to better contemplate the city: the many stairs up and down make us wander through Marseille at the rhythm of its valleys and hills, plunging us into the heart of small village cores and old fishing ports, then driving us up to 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.

Cette rando a été un facteur déterminant dans la réussite de notre w-e marseillais. Nous avons pu découvrir des coins secrets dans lesquels nous ne nous serions jamais aventurés seuls. La passion du guide pour sa ville est communicative. Nous avons fini la journée sur un petit nuage, la tête pleine d’étoiles. Vivement recommandé !


Un incontournable !

Une belle découverte de Marseille avec une perspective historique, géographique, sociologique. Et le guide, marseillais pur cru, est amoureux de sa ville! On découvre également des pépites que seuls marseillais connaissent! Vous ne verrez plus la ville de la même manière! Je recommande vivement!

It was my first approach to the city and it was a brilliant way to understand and appreciate it. I will definitely join another of the tours when I return to Marseille.
Olivier knows the hidden gems of the city and is also passionate about its urbanism and history. We only had one day to see Marseille and I am very happy that we decided to do it through this tour.
