Marseille Vacations

Marseille vacations take you to the Southern coast of France. This scenic, sunny port city on the Mediterranean Sea has been designated a European Capital of Culture, and you'll sense its rich heritage as you explore Le Panier historical district, the Old Port and its ancient fortifications, or excellent museums and galleries. If you'd like to explore the broader region, rent a car in Marseille and head to some of the other beautiful cities such as Nice, Avignon, and Aix-en-Provence or the mountainous coast of Calanques National Park.

Major Attractions

Walk seaward down the Canebiere, the city's main thoroughfare, and you'll reach the Old Port, one of the major tourist attractions in Marseille. See two 17th century forts—Fort Saint-Nicholas and Fort Saint-Jean—still guarding the city. Linked by a bridge from Fort Saint-Jean is the Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilizations, a national museum dedicated to regional culture from ancient through modern times. Choose Marseille hotels in the vicinity of the Old Port and you'll be close to another major attraction, the Notre-Dame de la Garde. The basilica sits on the highest hill in the city, a limestone outcrop near the port, on the foundations of an ancient fort. Visit the landmark to enjoy panoramic views over the rooftops of Marseille and the coast.

Recurring Festivals and Events

Enjoy a vacation in Marseille in spring and you might be in town for the mid-March Spring Carnival. The carnival procession ends at the Old Port and includes live music and street performers. From mid-June to mid-July, the city celebrates with the Festival de Marseille. Bastille Day in July is marked by a two-day spectacle of folk parades, ending with a fireworks show at the Old Port.
