We will be on a 12 day Med cruise with a one day stop in Marseilles. As yet I have done little research into our stopover ports as we also have near a month in Spain and Italy to ourselves which I have been trying to sort out.
My research so far has shown me this is a large city where the usual tourist destinations are widespread. I am loathe to take any organised tours (especially those offered by the cruise liners), however, I am starting to think Marseille may best be appreciated by a bus day tour. Is this a correct assumption?? If so, is any one able to make recommendations either of a company who may cater for cruise liner passengers or could you suggest the sites we should look out for if we have a variety to choose from.
I certainly agree with you that this is not the way to really get a feel for a place....I am viewing it as a 'taster" so we know where to come back and spend more time when our lives become less cluttered with things like work!!!
