Itinerary
Stop At:  
Chateau d'If
This famous fortress, standing on a rocky island off the coast of Marseille, was immortalised by Alexandre Dumas in The Count of Monte Cristo as the prison where the novel’s hero, Edmond Dantes, was incarcerated before ultimately escaping. The castle was built by Francois I in 1524 and over the centuries it gained a fearsome reputation as many opponents of royal power were jailed and died in the fortress. The Castle of If has been perfectly preserved and is one of the most impressive historical sites on the Mediterranean coastline. Open: > 15th May to 20th September: from 9.30 a.m. to 6.15 p.m. > 21st September to 14th May: from 9.30 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. The last visit depends on the timetable of boats, information at the tourist information center, on our website monuments-nationaux.fr or on Frioul If express. Closed: > Mondays from 21st September to 14th May. > 1st January, 25th December and subject to bad weather.

Not so good... on Monday only one museum open. Trip from cruise port to town too expensive And, the driver dropped us off about a mile to city center...so we had to pass shops.

This was full of discounts and saved us a lot of money! There are a few details we did not know that would have saved us some grumblings from providers here and there. We took the ferry out to Chateau D'If which was easy to locate, well organized, and worth the time. The pass only gets you to one of the two islands. That is all we wanted to do anyway but if you wanted to go to the other island you would have had to pay more. We walked from the port to the Notre Dame very hilly but we wanted to do it rather than take the mini train. We did take the mini train back by showing out passes at the cathedral. The driver grumbled at us a little because we didn't take the train from town so we didn't actually have tickets so the company wouldn't be able to record us using it. These were the only two things I really wanted to pass along. The pass was totally worth it and will save you money for your trip.

This was a nice experience. We were able to get our Le Petit tour train tickets with this pass. I would recommend using this if you're in the area at least the whole day to maximize the pass. We were only there for a few hours from our Cruise and the cruise port is 20mins away.

We were able to use a 49 hour pass for public transportation as well as the Little Train and some museums. The best one was the Museum of the Mediterranean and Marseille.

We did not use it enough to justify the cost. The City Tour people told us they were hop on hop off but were not. The Mucem was confusing to get into and had very poor signage directing you to the various exhibitions.

This city tour was perfect. We got more than our money's worth and we only did the Mini-Train ride and took the ferry to Chateau D'If. There is plenty of time in the day to do more, but we got a lazy start that morning. I would definitely recommend this even if it's just for one day.
