Marseille is the city with the second largest population in France, after Paris, and can be found along the south-east coast. Marseille is France’s largest commercial port and is the capital of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region. It is also one of the oldest cities in Europe and so has a long and diverse history, having embraced people from all different ethnic backgrounds. There are numerous museums to visit and historical artefacts to see, as well as cultural events to enjoy and an exciting nightlife. Marseille is far from being a sleepy city and it is unlikely you will struggle to find things to do during your stay.
There are a number of notable sights to see in Marseille. There is the Notre Dame de la Garde, an old church which overlooks the city; la Place Castellane, a roundabout with a sculpture in the centre and plenty of cafés in the surrounding area; Le Panier, which is the oldest area of the town; the Mazargues War Cemetery, a war cemetery dedicated to Allied soldiers who lost their lives during the two world wars; also there is le Vieux Port, or the old harbour, where you can watch fishermen sell their stock by auction. Plus, there are a number of museums to visit, including the Musée des Docks Romains and the Musée d'Archéologie méditerranéenne.
Marseille is also home to a number of popular cultural events, such as La Fête Bleue, a festival whose theme is the colour blue; La Fête du Panier, which takes place in the oldest part of town and gives you an opportunity to watch a range of concerts and shows; Le Festival de Danse et des Arts Multiples de Marseille, a dance festival; Marsatac, a music festival that has featured many notable performers over the years and La Fiesta Des Suds, a festival that is dedicated to world music. Marseille Pride is the most popular event aimed at the LGBT community and is held in July.
There are also numerous bars and clubs in the city, so that once you’ve had your fill of culture and history, you can find somewhere to have a drink and dance the night away. It is therefore no surprise that Marseille is a popular tourist destination, since it has so much to offer.
