When traveling to France, don’t make your only stop Paris. Marseille is a must-see port city that is like no other. Located in southern France, Marseille is the second largest city in the country and dates back 1500 years in history. With beautiful beaches, museums and architecture, this museum is sure to please any traveler.
Marseille is perfect for a fun night out or a relaxing day exploring the city. Spend a night being serenaded at the Opera de Marseille or check out the Musée Cantini, which boasts artists like Picasso. The Vieux-Port, or Old Port, is the main harbor in the city and has many cafes and a fish market to enjoy. The harbor is surrounded by two forts that have been reconstructed and both offer tours. Be sure to visit the classic arch ‘Porte d’ Aix, which was the old entry point to the city and check out the old cathedrals of the city. Parc Balneaire Du Prado is a popular beach that offers many events throughout the year and has a replica of Micheloangelo’s ‘David’ sculpture. Marseille is known as a windy city, and at this beach you can celebrate by flying a kite at the Fete du Vent, or Festival of Wind.
There are a variety of quaint French towns to explore just outside of Marseille. Just 40 minutes east is Cassis, a smaller port town that may feel more at ease than the big city. Drive 40 minutes north and you’ll be in Aix-en-Provence, where you’ll get to see even more museums and explore the quaint city center. Just a bit more north is Gordes, which has ancient castles and beautiful monuments. All of these towns are worth the visit and are accessible by car, train or bus. A train ride to Paris will take about four hours, but there are many other places to see in the countryside.
