The Basics

After docking at Marseilles Cruise Port, many visitors stay to admire the Old Port (Vieux Port), the historic Chateau d’If, and the Notre-Dame de la Garde basilica. However, shore excursions to nearby Provencal towns such as Arles, Les Baux de Provence, and Aix-en-Provence—where you can go wine tasting, visit lavender fields, or explore artistic locations, with round-trip transportation included—are also popular. Or combine a boat ride around Calanques National Park with a trip to Cassis.
