A fantastic city with an edge

Want to discover another side to France? Book a flight to Marseille and stroll along the picturesque streets of the Old Port, admire the Notre Dame de la Garde and take a boat to Château d’If. Marseille has a unique, contradictory character. It’s elegant, but at the same time a little edgy. It’s steeped in history, but also modern. In summer, the city’s beaches are a wonderful place to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Historic streets and modern museums

Marseille is a city packed with history The Old Port is 2,600 years old and used to be the city’s economic centre. This is the most atmospheric part of the city for enjoying a pleasant walk, or relaxing on a terrace. The narrow streets in the historic Le Panier district are also great. If you like modern art, you’ll have a great time in Marseille. The CeReM and MuCEM have given the city a totally new look. These two museums let you discover various sides of Mediterranean life. Marseille is the ideal destination for a weekend holiday or as the starting point for a beautiful tour of France. Treat yourself: book a flight to Marseille now!

Marseille’s speciality

Without a doubt, Marseille’s bouillabaisse is the world’s most famous fish soup and it’s inextricably linked to this port city. This tasty, red soup is a real tradition. You can enjoy it in almost any restaurant, but it’s best to go to the restaurants around the Old Port. Order a nice glass of wine and enjoy! There’s also plenty to do outside of Marseille. The fragrant lavender fields and charming villages of Provence are just a stone’s throw away.
