Marseille is a lively port city in the South of France, with a cosmopolitan vibe and a rich maritime heritage.
Visit the Old Port where fresh fish is sold straight off the docks, or take your time to explore the seaside roads and hidden coves and beaches dotted along the coastline.
The Capucin district is well worth seeing, and is home to streets full of market stalls selling everything from African spices to Chinese groceries and traditional Provençal goods. Another must see is the opera house, which is a wonderful blend of neo-classicim and art deco and of course the perfect place to enjoy a show while you're in Marseille.
There's plenty of ways to see the sights of the city, including by Tuk Tuk, tram, electric bike and by boat. Why not find out what this beach side city has in store for you?
