When staying in Marseille, many activities are available to you: museum visits, exploring the region’s natural jewels, or shopping on the Canebière… To discover Marseille, start with the basilica of Notre-Dame de la Garde, nicknamed “la Bonne Mère” (“The Good Mother”), it is truly emblematic. It stands atop a headland, thus allowing you to admire a fabulous panorama of the Cité Phocéenne. Your visit to Marseille will not fail to include a visit to the Vieux-Port, just a stone’s throw from your hotel. Take in this location in the morning, when the fishing boats come in- a unique and magical moment! Also to be enjoyed at the Vieux-Port is a tasting of local delicacies in one of its many restaurants. Finally, one unmissable activity to be enjoyed in Marseille is a discovery of the Calanques. You’ll walk along clifftops overlooking the sea, to the sound of cicadas singing. When travelling by boat, you’ll take in a whole new viewpoint and can access small isolated beaches while enjoying the sea air.
