Everything is ready in Marseille to welcome Belem and the Olympic flame. The capricious weather of the last few days has given way to the sun, temperatures are mild, the mistral blows moderately. A dream time. In recent days, several monuments have been adorned with the colors of Olympism and the Old Port has had a makeover.

The epicenter of Marseille has in recent days been the scene of a giant construction site to install the structures for the festivities, and in particular the pontoon stage in the shape of an athletics track to which the three-masted ship will moor with on board Florent Manaudou2012 Olympic swimming champion and first wearer of the Olympic torch on French soil.

The 36,000 square meters of quays were cleaned with a scraper, the main arteries cleared of trash, the waters of the port were dredged and the boats inspected. On the security side, the device intended to make the Old Port “watertight” is imposing: dozens of CRS vans and police officers surround the site. And hotels, bars and restaurants are ready to accommodate a large audiencedespite numerous traffic constraints.

France Bleu offers you experience this entire day of celebration in photos and videos. From the parade at sea around the Belem to the entry of the three-masted vessel into the Old Port, from the appearance of the torch to the lighting of the Olympic cauldron, many activities are planned : demonstrations, comedy shows, Patrouille de France air show, concerts and “live” performance by rapper Soprano to end the day.
