Video Welcome Pope Francis to Marseille!

Bienvenue à Marseille au Pape François - Drone Pictures

Share this post

A visit by the Pope to Marseille is historical.
So we, the first drone operator to set up in Marseille in 2011, wanted to mark the occasion and welcome Pope Francis.
We’re doing it with our hearts and with our resources, in other words with our aerial images!
So here’s a video postcard of Marseille to show the Pope how sublime and happy our city is to welcome him in September 2023!



We’ve (re)released our best drone images of the Bonne-Mère, the Stade Vélodrome and the Pharo. Some of them were shot at events such as the Velodrome in February 2023, where the Pope will be celebrating mass in front of 60,000 faithful. Others were filmed on our initiative, such as the Old Port and the Palais du Pharo, where the Rencontres Méditerranéennes are taking place and which the Pope is attending.

As for Notre-Dame-de-la-garde, most of the shots were filmed during the various city lockdowns in 2020, with special authorisation from its rector, Father Spinosa.
We know that these images show a partial and advantageous view of our city, and that many districts are not as beautiful and attractive. Nor have we forgotten the deaths linked to drug trafficking or the city’s bad reputation, but doesn’t Marseille deserve to be in the headlines for its many positive aspects? We think so.

Finally, let’s take advantage of this post, and of the Rencontres Méditerranéennes, to spare a thought for the victims of the floods in Libya, the earthquake in Morocco and the fires in Greece. In the hope that these disasters will remain exceptional.
