Sur les pas du GR2013 : de Port de Bouc au Ranquet

Hike - Throughout the year

From Port de Bouc, GR 2013 walks through the city towards the Domaine départemental du Castillon. Castillon is by far. Partially destroyed by fire in 2000, the field today licks his wounds.After the slaughter of the affected trees, a rehabilitation patient begins to bear fruit, and suddenly, his forty-nine hectares located in the commune of Port-de-Bouc come alive, little by little. The visitors, as the regulars have much. Their presence, particularly on the sporting course, stimulates those who apply to treat this part of the close nature of the forest of Castillon and Saint-Blaise archaeological landscape where you can visit remains: a Hellenistic enclosure wall, the foundations of a prosperous native city at the time of the peak of Massilia, as well as a medieval church and the tombs of Crusaders. With prestigious neighbours, Castillon must regain its lustre. Pine plantations sprockets and rehabilitation of vegetation through associations will be for many.

Site Archéologique de Saint-Blaise

Port de Bouc

Les fouilles entreprises par Henri Rolland en 1935 et poursuivies après sa mort, ont permis la mise au jour, de huit couches archéologiques. Un très beau rempart hellénistique (IIe siècle av. J.C.) surmonté de l'enceinte paléochrétienne, une nécropole chrétienne, les substructions de la basilique St-Vincent-d'Ugium...
La Chapelle St-Blaise est une construction romane du XIIe siècle, restaurée au XIIIe siècle et dont la façade a été refaite en 1608. Environnée de tombes médiévales, elle est précédée par les substructions d'une église du XIe siècle. Elle occupe l'emplacement de la cité de Castelveyre. Le long mur, construit en 1231 pour la protéger, clôture aujourd'hui le champ de fouilles où les ruines d'Ugium recouvrent celles de la ville antique.

Dear old stones

Do you love old stone buildings and Provence? For this heritage tour, start your day at Marseille's Roman docks before heading to the modern and interactive Marseille history museum. Today's lunch recommendation is Une Table au Sud in the Old Port. It's very close to the city's archaeological museum, a fantastic way to get to grips with Marseille from today and back to the past.

In Saint-Rémy, the ancient town of Glanum will bring your two-day tour to a wonderful conclusion.

Marseille le Panier by Les Marseillaises

It may be the oldest district in Marseille but le Panier has lost none of its charm. In fact, the area has seen a remarkable rebound since the arrival of the MuCEM and the renovation of la Joliette, without mentioning the historical monuments alongside the artists’ workshops hidden in the narrow streets.

Marseille and the coast in a day

When you disembark for your stop in Marseille, you probably want to see the city centre and the coast? This itinerary takes you on a tour of essential Marseille in a day. You could spend the morning in the MuCEM, a museum dedicated to the history of Marseille since it was founded, set in a brand-new, stylish building. Before lunch, go for a stroll around the old Panier district en route to the Café des Épices. The afternoon will fly by as you visit the calanque in Port-Miou and go shopping in Cassis.
