The summer services for the hourly boats – navettes maritimes – which go from the Vieux Port down to Point Rouge or along to L’Estaque and back will start on Saturday 27th April until 29th September.  Cost still 5€ each way.  If you haven’t tried these short journeys, they are a great way to see the coast and spend a little time in either community.  Pointe Rouge has a nice sandy beach and restaurants ‘pieds dans l’eau’, while L’Estaque has a walk around the viewing points that once drew painters from all over the country……loads of restaurants too.

During the summer, 25 June – 27 September, there will be an additional service down to Les Goudes, 8 euros.

Marseille has been working hard to get itself on the tourist ‘must-see’ list and the Tourist Office now offers many organised visits to different parts of this vibrant city.  Apart from the obvious sites, visitors can opt for food-tasting tours, street art walks, lunch on a cruise ship, or behind the scenes at the Marseille opera which includes a fascinating visit to the atelier where costumes are made.

Their new catalogue describes them for trip-organisers – but at the same time gives us individuals lots of ideas for outings!
