The Marseille City Pass is one of several tourist board-sponsored passes to France’s regional cities. It’s an inexpensive way to experience this Mediterranean city in southern France. For about €29 for a 2-day pass, the card gives you free admission to 14 of the city’s museums, a guided tour, a boat to If Castle, and unlimited use of the public transportation system.
The pass is available for one or two days. You have to indicate your travel dates, but you won’t be held to these if your plans change.
Top Included Marseille Attractions
Museum of African, Oceanic and American-Indian Art
Tourist train to the basilica Notre Dame de la Garde
Free access to the metro, bus in Marseille
See the complete list of attractions and tours in the sidebar.
Children receive discounts or free admission at most attractions anyway, so there is no need to buy a pass for them. There is no child-rate pass.
What Could get better?
The guided tours are conducted in French, except for a once-a-week guided tour of the old town, which must be pre-booked. The English tour is usually on Saturday or Sunday afternoon.
Get Your Money’s Worth
A two-day pass is only 7€ more, so if you’ll be in town for more than one day, it’s worth the extra cost and you won’t have to pack as much sightseeing into one day to get the full value of the pass.
Most museums are closed on Mondays.
Your card is good for a free sample of soap at La Maison des Savons, as well as a free sample of the local biscuit called Le Four des Navettes.
