Description

This 30km bike tour takes in the most beautiful beaches and the prettiest rocky coves around Marseilles.

The guided ride starts off with the incredible Abbey of Saint Victor, before cutting through the most picturesque neighborhoods of the Mediterranean city to reach Pharo Palace which looks out over the sea and consequently offers an exceptional view.

Cycle on to the enchanting cottages, cafés and restaurants at the quaint port of Vallon des Auffes. The itinerary then takes the Corniche Kennedy coastal road past the magnificent beaches of Prado and the small fishing port of Madrague Montredon.

Have lunch in a traditional restaurant on the port of Goudes (according to the schedule) before setting off again in the direction of the Cap Croisette islets located in the heart of the Riou Archipelago; a relaxing and exotic setting.

Go for a swim in the rocky cove of Maronaise then visit the small port of Calanque de Callelongue with its charming landscape and crystal-clear waters.

Finish your tour by cycling through the Borelli Park and admiring the famous Basilica Notre Dame de la Garde, also known as the Good Mother!

This 1-day cycling excursion takes in the most beautiful sights in Marseilles and its beautiful rocky coves with a program that combines swimming, local cuisine and stunning views.
