Marseille Tourisme encourages you to visit the surroundings of Marseille with this short hike. Enjoy a peaceful stroll along the Cadière aux Pennes-Mirabeau. The hiking trail joins a small part of the GR2013. The spring of the stream looks magical and water comes out of a small cave. The children will be captivated! And this river will also bring you a little freshness on hot summer days.

No special equipment is required. Just think to respect the place and make something to drink 😉 The return takes the same path. For the sporty, why not do this tour by bike? On the way back, you can visit the Plan de Campagne shopping center, one of the most popular in France. Its many shops will delight fans of shopping 🙂
