One of France’s largest and most diverse cities, Marseille is a place of seaside glamour, old-fashioned cobbled streets, beautiful boutiques and sunshine galore. As the European capital of Culture for 2013, there are a great range of theatres and museums, such as the Museum des Beaux-Arts de Marseille, or the National History Museum. Marseille’s old port, encased by two gigantic medieval forts, is also a fantastic destination, for some of the city’s best views and best food. Or why not stroll up to the Abbey of St. Victor, dating back to the 5th century, before relaxing with a Bouillabaisse and a glass of wine at a restaurant on the seafront?
Sports fans should head to the Stade Velodrome, where L’Olympique Marseille, one of France’s finest football teams play. Or if you fancy learning a little bit more about Marseille itself, the Marseille history museum offers a fantastic and comprehensive history of the city. After a long day’s sightseeing, you might want to relax, and Marseille’s beaches are the perfect place to do just that – try heading to Prado or Point Rouge for the very best sand and sea.
