Martigues is beautiful at night... our urban walk takes you to discover the illuminations of the town centre and from the chapel
Notre-Dame-des-Marins chapel on the heights to discover an exceptional panorama.
The atmosphere of the end-of-year celebrations is settling in the Provençal Venice.
When the city is highlighted by the magic of the Christmas lights, there is definitely something to marvel at. An unforgettable night-time experience!

You will meet in front of the Tourist Office at 3.15 pm.
At 3.30 pm, our walkers leave for the bridges, quays and squares of the city centre.
After crossing the garden of La Rode on the edge of the pond, you will start the ascent towards the mill and the Notre-Dame-des-Marins chapel.
At the end of the walk (around 7pm), we offer our happy participants a comforting drink.
