About The ColorBus Marseille Tour:

ColorBus Marseille is a flexible sightseeing bus service that connects visitors to top landmarks and attractions throughout Marseilles. Use a valid 1 or 2 day pass to access the white double deckers at any one of tour's 14 hop-on hop-off stops.

Given Marseilles' coastal location, popular starting points include Port Vieux and Les Docks de la Joliette. The latter is well served by RTM Line 35, which has multiple stops close to the cruise terminals. From Place de la Joliette, Port Vieux is easily accessible by RTM Line 55.

From whichever point you choose to start the ColorBus Tour, travel between popular attractions such as La Criée Theatre, Palais du Pharo and Notre-Dame de la Garde. Buses frequent each stop every 30-45 minutes (see timetable), so if a particular museum or scenic spot tickles your fancy simply hop-off and explore at your own pace. Helpful staff will always be on-hand to advise visitors on the best landmarks, dining locations and events.

In addition to stunning panoramic views from the top deck, ColorBus buses feature digital audio commentary in a choice of 8 languages. Headphones are provided free of charge when you first present your printed ticket to the tour staff/driver.
