When to go
Curated for you
For 2,600 years, Marseille’s historic port has been the beating heart of the city. The Vieux-Port is still located where the ancient Greek market once stood. Nowadays, it is one of Marseille’s most popular neighbourhoods. Since extensive renovations were carried out, virtually the entire area is a pedestrian zone. The atmosphere is inviting and pleasant, thanks in part to the dozens of cafés and restaurants.
ARTS & CULTURE
The prestigious MuCEM is the jewel in the crown of cultural Marseille. The museum focuses on the European and Mediterranean civilizations from Early Antiquity to present-day. It is housed in an ultra-modern building with a footbridge leading to a medieval fort. The unique architecture makes the museum impressive both inside and out.
