After a year wasted by the Covid-19, tourism is finally recovering in Marseille (Bouches-du-Rhône). But it remains, despite everything, very supervised.
The health crisis had stopped the many activities on the port of Marseilles (Bouches-du-Rhône). The All Saints holidays marked their return. These holidays were an excellent vintage for tourism in France which is taking off again. However, the activities remain very supervised. In Marseille, the cruises have resumed, but for those who want to discover the city, caution remains in order. Tourists have the right to two short hours in a car without any contact with the locals.
Tourists were able to take advantage of the return of cruises without fully benefiting from it. Restrictions related to Covid-19 all have many activities. The only small satisfaction is the 15 minutes grouped at the foot of Notre-Dame de la Garde. Barely time to enjoy the scenery, cruise passengers are immediately invited to join the coach. “The Covid-19 did not allow us to visit in peace all the places we would like, but the fact that the excursion is completely safe, that is important”, entrusts Tiziana Plano, an Italian cruise line. The situation should remain modified, even if a request has been sent to the government for the health constraints to be relaxed.
