Discover or rediscover the city with your family
The Tourist Office offers guided family tours during all school holidays. A discovery of street-art in the Cours Julien district, a playful tour of the Cité Radieuse du Corbusier, a storytelling tour to discover the legendary Massalia, or a treasure hunt through the Parc Borely to find the famous treasure of the Borely family. And if you are tempted, why not explore the Jarre Park and discover an original artistic place where you will attend an equestrian demonstration by the Centaure Theatre! So many visits that are worth a visit!

Invader was here
Go hunting with your children…for eggs? No, the Spaces Invaders ! These little colourful mosaics are hidden in several areas of the city! You’ve probably seen them before. During the summer of 2020, the street artist Invader installed his works all over the city, and today, there are nearly 97! It’s up to you to find them!
Go out to sea
A beautiful sunny day, a nice spring day, we go out to the sea and discover the Count of Monte Cristo on the island of Château d’If ! Only 30 minutes from the Old Port by boat, the If Castle offers a breathtaking view of the bay of Marseille. During the holidays, we invite you to discover with your family all the mysteries of this impregnable fortress!

If there is only one thing to see in Marseille, it is our famous Good Mother, Notre-Dame de la Garde who rises high on her hill! All means are good to get there, on foot (count 20 minutes from the Old Port), by bike or by bus (N°60), but the ideal option if you are with your family, is to take the little tourist train from the Old Port, it leads you directly to Notre-Dame de la Garde !
