Holidays to Marseille

Holidays in Marseille have much to offer. If you are eager to explore the city’s rich history and culture, then there is a wide selection of galleries and museums to visit. For an insight into this great French port’s Greek and Roman past, The Musée d'Histoire is the place to go. As well as housing a collection of fascinating artefacts, the museum is also located near to the Jardin des Vestiges, a group of archaeological gardens.

Another museum that should not be missed is the The Musée du Vieux Marseill. Known for its stunning architecture, this fascinating museum will enable you to gain an insight into the everyday life of the city from the 18th century onwards. It is not only a source of information about the city’s history, but also displays a collection of costumes, furniture and even kitchen utensils.

For some of the most stunning views of the city, the Notre Dame de la Garde is worth a visit. This historic church is one Marseille’s most prominent tourist attractions, simply due to its stunning architecture and the spectacular views of the city that it offers. The church looks particularly stunning when illuminated at night.

In the course of your holidays in Marseille, be sure to visit some of city’s parks and walkways, which offer stunning views during the day and at sunset. Parc Borély is perfect for tourists who enjoy a leisurely stroll while taking in views of the city and its idyllic beach. The park also offers a selection of bars and restaurants where you can relax after a busy day exploring and enjoy stunning views of the city and beach as the sun sets. La Corniche, which is a walkway, provides impressive views of the sea.

For the perfect day out, Marseille has two popular areas located on its outskirts, which can easily be reached by rail and where you can enjoy beautiful countryside. One of these is Plan De Cuques, which is perfect for a family day out and offers gorgeous views of the Mediterranean.

If you are interested in exploring some of the more contemporary attractions that holidays to Marseille have to offer, there are a variety of cultural events, which are sure to provide the perfect day or evening out. From popular music festivals, such as La Fête du Panier, which takes place in the oldest part of town, to the fun and fascinating La Fête Bleue, which is based around the colour blue, there are events and attractions to suit everyone.

In addition to culture and history, you can also satisfy any yearnings for a spot of retail therapy or gourmet dining by investigating a variety of shops, bars and cafes, during your holidays to Marseille. You should target the St Ferreol and the Centre Bourse, which are the main shopping areas in the city. The selection of cafes and bars make both the perfect places to relax after a busy day exploring.
