On your way: Landscapes and relief
Your hike starts out from the heart of Marseille. After Abbaye Saint-Victor, take the staircase at Jardin Pierre Pujet and head towards Notre-Dame de la Garde basilica. A bit further on, a gentle descent leads you to Le Bois Sacré (The Sacred Wood). Next, you’ll come to a succession of uphill climbs and staircases before arriving back on Promenade Georges Pompidou. The itinerary then joins up with the Parc Balnéaire du Prado beaches. After the Rimbaud monument, follow the Huveaune river along Parc Borély and continue this agreeable stroll past the Mazargues obelisk before reaching Parc Saint-Cyr and Chapelle Notre-Dame de Nazareth in the Saint-Marcel quarter via a series of lanes and steep pathways. Finally, head along Chemin du Pic Foch to your destination in the Barasse quarter.
