Discover Marseille through its epic history, natural beauty and legendary art scene. Sitting by the ancient Le Panier neighbourhood and under the watchful eye of the iconic Notre-Dame de la Garde basilica is the Old Port, the city’s beating heart. Explore nature’s masterpieces at the Calanques National Park, before visiting Cézanne’s studio in nearby Aix-en-Provence.

Marseille Your Way

Discover the unspoiled beauty of Les Calanques along Marseille’s coast, stunning inlets surrounded by towering white limestone walls. Sugiton is utterly uninhabited; perfect for a romantic afternoon à deux. Stroll hand in hand along La Corniche and take in the spectacular Mediterranean views, like the Îles du Frioul, the Prado Beaches, and the Château d’If. Blessed with a favourable climate, Aix-en-Provence is a must-visit city of great elegance whose streets and plazas are always bustling with activity. History is the backdrop to everyday life here, where festivals, markets and delightful sun-soaked terraces coexist. Strolling the streets is a great way to discover the city’s remarkable architectural heritage and Baroque wonders. Each fountain has its secrets, and each private mansion, a tale to tell. Set off to discover the places that marked the life of Cézanne, the great Post-Impressionist painter whose work is the stuff of dreams. Continue your holiday in the Aix countryside to admire the breathtaking landscapes, vineyards and charming towns. From recreational activities to wine tasting, there are plenty of activities providing an experience that’s truly Provençal.
Family playgrounds
Located in the Old Town, the Préau des Accoules is a museum designed specifically for children that hosts two exhibits a year accompanied by games and educational activities. Recent themes have seen the museum transformed into an indoor garden. Once an enormous tobacco manufacturing plant, La Friche La Belle de Mai is now an immense cultural space. Kids can play in the playground, teens can try out the skatepark, and the whole family can browse galleries, take in concerts, enjoy festivals and experience the true heart and diversity of modern Marseille.
Travelling with friends
Enjoy Marseille at your own pace on the Hop-On, Hop-Off Bus Tour. Jump off at the beach to catch some rays, on again to see the Vieux Port and Fort Saint-Nicolas from the open upper deck, then off again for some traditional Provençal cuisine at Place aux Huiles or a baguette at the Place de la Préfecture. Treat your friends to an afternoon in Marseille’s hippest area, Le Cours Julien. Check out the bars, restaurants and shops, and be sure to pick up some authentic Savon de Marseille soaps. 

Discover the city of Marseille and much more!
