Very nice walk, even for inhabitants of Marseille. The bikes are of good quality and the electric motor makes the climbs quite doable. So sporty walk but not too much. The guide gives you plenty of anecdotes about the places crossed, which further enhances the walk even if it is enough on its own.

A complete and superb tour of the city, for a first discovery of Marseille! With a guide at the top, passionate about his job and who knows the history of the city well, all embellished with anecdotes. Things to do to combine sport, pleasure and discovery!
