Hiking in the hills of Roucas Blanc

Pedestrian sports, Hiking itinerary Interdepartmental


After visiting Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde, explore the Roucas Blanc. This district, a real maze of narrow streets, can only be visited on foot and offers magnificent views of the city.
It is also the place of free expression of the Rocailleurs Marseillais of the XIXth century: craftsmen and creators of ornaments, sometimes very singular, one finds their creations in the dream gardens of the rich houses of the district.

Through the uphill crossings and the sloping streets, you will reach the Corniche Kennedy and the Plage du Prophète. Its fine sand and turquoise waters will offer you a nice reward after a rather sportive walk.
This is really the most amazing urban walk, so we invite you to look at your surroundings with curiosity and attention.
