Let’s take a look at some of the must-visit spots in this charming Mediterranean port city.

  • Old Port of Marseille (Vieux-Port)
    At the heart of Marseille, you'll find the Vieux-Port, a bustling harbor that's played a critical role in the city since it was founded by the Phoenicians around 600 BC. You can savor the local crowd, catch a fish market in the morning, or simply enjoy a sunset while dining at one of the many terraced cafes. For a mesmerizing view, visit the Fort Saint-Jean at the entrance of the port.
  • Le Panier
    Stroll through Le Panier, Marseille's oldest quarter known for its quaint streets and colorful buildings. Filled with artisanal shops, creative studios, and charming cafes, it's a vibrant enclave that offers a glimpse into the city's soul. Make sure to check out La Vieille Charité, a former almshouse that now houses museums and exhibitions.
  • Basilique Notre-Dame de la Garde
    This 19th-century Catholic basilica sits atop a limestone outcrop south of the Old Port and offers one of the most exquisite panoramic views of the city. A trip to Marseille wouldn't be complete without witnessing the grandeur of Notre-Dame de la Garde, with its ornate interior and impressive structure.
  • Calanques National Park
    Just a short bus ride from central Marseille, you can immerse yourself in the natural beauty of Calanques National Park. The park features a dramatic coastline with crystal-clear waters ideal for swimming and a rugged terrain perfect for hiking.

  • La Corniche
    Enjoy a leisurely walk or cycle along La Corniche, a scenic roadway that runs along the coast offering uninterrupted sea views. This stretch is perfect for snapping photos or simply soaking in the Mediterranean charm.
  • The Markets of Marseille
    No visit to Marseille is truly complete without experiencing the city's markets. FeussiNettes, known for its flowers and local produce, or the iconic fish market at the Old Port, bring you the authentic buzz of Marseille life.

Discovering the Calanques on our day trip was nothing short of magical. The vibrant blue waters against the limestone cliffs are a sight I'll never forget. It was well-organized and the guide made sure we all had plenty of time to appreciate the beauty without feeling rushed.
