Holidays in Marseille

This region of Provence is called home by about 800,000 residents.

Marseille isn't too far away from Iles du Frioul, which is situated 4 miles to the west. Paris, the national capital, is to be found 410 miles to the north.

Holidays with the kids are all about making memories that will last a lifetime. When it comes to finding activities that every family member will enjoy, you can't go past Magic Park Land and OK Corral.

If you want a break from the commotion of the city, organise a visit to an oasis of greenery like Parc Borely or Jardin des Vestiges. You can also relax and watch life pass by at the Palais Longchamps and Parc du Mugel.

To really get under the skin of a destination, there’s nothing like picking up a little local knowledge. Whatever you need, the helpful staff at Marseille Tourism Office will be able to guide you in the right direction.

Look out for vibrant waterbirds as you sit thoughtfully by the edge of the water at Calanque de Port Miou.

An afternoon by the ocean is a relaxing antidote to the hustle and bustle of the city, so why not spend a bit of time breathing in the deliciously salty air at Cassis Beach or Prado Beach? Want to add to your collection of shells? You should also drop by Plage des Catalans and La Ciotat Beach.

When was the last time you really immersed yourself in nature? Without checking your Facebook, Twitter or Instagram accounts? If you can't remember when, log out and get back to basics at Cassis Harbour.

The Musee des Docks Romains and the Musee de la Marine are ideal places to escape a less-than-perfect day. Peruse the eye-opening exhibits and ask the helpful staff about tours and other one-off happenings! If you're not pressed for time, also go to the Musee des Beaux-Arts and the Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilisations.

Nowadays you don't need to traverse the seven seas to behold the many wonders of the natural world. You can stop into places like the Musee d'Archeologie Mediterraneenne and the Museum of Old Marseille instead, where an amazing variety of fascinating specimens are showcased all in the one location.

Art enthusiasts come from all corners of the globe to see Marseille's sensational collections, and the Musee d'Art Contemporain and the Musee Regards de Provence are usually among the first stops on their lists. If you've got time for more, continue onwards to the Musée Cantini and the Galerie de la Friche Belle de Mai.

Get a glimpse into the influence that Marseille's past events and characters had on the nation, and sometimes the world, at the La Vieille Charite and the Musee d'Histoire de Marseille. For even more insight into the days of old, you might also like to check out the Marcel Pagnol House and the Musée du Santon.

Get a glimpse into the past by checking out some of Marseille's historic sights. Though you're spoilt for options, Chateau d'If and Hotel de Ville are ideal places to start. What not also stop by Radiant City and the Faculty of Medicine?

Are you fascinated by military history? Go on an excursion to Fort Saint Jean and Fort de Bouc and learn about their roles as key fortifications along with the fate of those who defended them. Fort Saint Nicholas and Lighthouse of the Fort de Bouc have also withstood many sieges over the years.

When it came to designing Pharo Palace and Palais du Pharo, no detail was glazed over. A good tour guide will make sure you don't miss any of it. Of course, don't miss the chance to see Palais de Longchamp either.

With its thick walls and grand turrets, Musee de la Faience is a remarkable structure. Gaze upon its façade or just close your eyes and imagine what it was like during its heyday.

Get a fill of both local history and faith at Abbaye de Saint Victor and Notre-Dame de la Garde. If you want to discover even more, continue on to Saint Vincent de Paul Church and Cathedral la Major.

You'll probably feel as though you've experienced it all after seeing Marseille's most impressive tourist sights, but don't be too sure. There are still a few things which are worth a look. Why not enjoy a visit to the Silo Concert Hall and Sormiou de Calanque? Ecopark Adventures and Expenature also promise an enjoyable day out.

    3 star Hotel so pretty much as expected. Our room was tiny but that didn't matter. It was clean and the bed was comfortable and we only needed a room to sleep in because there is so much to see and do in Marseille. And the hotel's central location in Le Vieux Port is absolutely perfect.
