Það sem verður gert

Marseille a rough diamond of a city - a big sprawling metropolis, a port city, the second city of France & one that takes a little time to discover. You're not likely to fall in love right away because it's going to take you a little while to appreciate it for what it is and see the beauty within and the beauty that's around. It has always been a city of immigrants, since the Greeks arrived here 2,600 years ago to the 20th Century when people came here because of the turmoil of Europe and the North Africa. It's a transient city - a bit of a rebel and always has been. Underneath there is a heart that beats. I'm going to show you two areas of the city - the poorest and ungentrified parts of Marseille, Le Panier - the old town & Noailles, the area of the city that oozes North African charm. Decayed buildings, ancient streets, with centuries of history. We will walk and discover both parts of Marseille and see how diverse these two key parts are, divided by the Canebière, a once elegant boulevard that mimicked the Champs Elysee in Paris, only to succumb to post-war decay. Now on the way up, there's a long way to go -I'll show you street art, graffiti and buildings in need of some TLC!

Yes that's right - I did call this the 'Ugly City' tour. My name is Christopher, I'm a travel and street photographer and also a registered tour guide. Originally from London, I've been living in Marseille for six years and really enjoy showing my guests the more interesting aspects of this 2,600 year old city. In the time I've been living here I have learnt a lot about the origins and history of Marseille and know the best and most unusual parts of the city to visit, because I still see it as a tourist. I always say you don't visit Marseille and fall in love with it - you have to look beyond what is immediate and look for the detail that's within.

Staðsetning

Le Panier - the old town of Marseille, ancient narrow streets, old buildings mixed with historic 17th century buildings, street art, graffiti and some buildings old and neglected and full of charm. The Noailles, the traditional North African part of the city - again small narrow streets, street food, street vendors and small shops and bazaars. The the Canebière, the once elegant grand boulevard created by houseman to copy the capital city Paris.

Christopher was very friendly, insightful, and thoughtful during his tour. It is obvious that he is very observant and curious about Marseille as a city, even after having lived here for a while, which makes his tour so unique and special. He was great to talk to and I had a wonderful time experiencing the city through his eyes as well as through the historical and present day stories of the city.

Christopher took us on a great walk along routes we would never have found by ourselves. Always looking up, he pointed out many interesting features of buildings. We loved his low key, casual style. If we come to Marseille again we will be sure to book again.

The name of this tour makes it popping up from the other offers but after choosing it, you will realize how special and out of the box experience you did. It show the special vibe of Marseille, the multi-culti way of this city and its openess. I would recommand you to do this for sure!

Chris vereint zwei besondere Fähigkeiten, die nicht so häufig zusammen anzutreffen sind: Er zeigt die Stadt aus verschiedenen Facetten und mischt gekonnt Geschichte, Gegenwart, Architektur und Kunst auf seiner Tour. Außerdem ist Chris einfach unglaublich sympathisch und es ist eine Freude, ihm zuzuhören. So machen Stadtführungen Spaß!

Christopher is a very kind and gentle person. He enjoys very much connecting with people and is passionate about his work. We recommend anyone that enjoys these qualities, to spend some time with him getting to know more about Marseille.

A very unique tour experience! We don't typically like taking guided tours because they are too touristy. This tour focused on areas where a tourist wouldn't usually go. Very interesting!
