Prado Beach is the largest beach in Marseille, with pebbles glinting in the sunshine as the Mediterranean laps its aquamarine waters up towards the promenade. Ride along to Montredon, a charming seaside district also famed for its beautiful beaches - this is the best of Marseille’s beachside beauty! At the port of Goudes there’s the optional stop at a fish restaurant to refuel before cycling to the captivating Cap Croisette. Few words exist to do justice to the astonishing beauty of these rugged cliffs, whose white faces are in sublime contrast with the surrounding turquoise waters. This is a unique view that will stay with you for many years to come!
Your e-bike tour reaches the Calanque de Callelongue, a picturesque port nestled within commanding white cliffs boasting exceptionally beautiful views of the Med. Bike on to Borely Park, where trees create wooded alleys alongside the canals, weaving you between the English and French Gardens. With a gorgeous lake, fabulous fountains, and even a castle, this is a real gem for your guided tour to explore!
Your epic day tour finishes with a bang at the Basilica of Notre-Dame de la Garde, the most famous symbol of Marseille. Built on the foundations of the highest natural point in the city, the basilica, known affectionately by locals as La Bonne Mère (‘The Good Mother’), watches earnestly over the city beneath. The upper church, built in the Neo-Byzantine style, is richly decorated with mosaics, and features a tower 41m high, supporting a 12.5m belfry, topped with a 11.2m copper statue of the Madonna and Child in glinting gold leaf!
