Your stay in Marseille

Known to the ancient Greeks and Romans as Massalia, Marseille is the oldest city in France and was the most important trading centre in the region and the main commercial port of the French Empire. Marseille is now France’s largest city on the Mediterranean coast and the largest port for commerce, freight and cruise ships.

All the wonderful features contribute to the well-being of local people and its 100% sure that you will also feel great here! The key attraction of Marseille is the city itself – the atmosphere, flux and throbbing beat of a big port city. The place lives and works essentially in the present, and has done for the past two and a half millennia. Almost despite itself, though, it has accumulated a backlog of culture – to which Marseille’s stint, in 2013 as European Capital of Culture has brought a certain amount of coherence and much pizzazz.

Marseille is not only a dense, interesting city but with nearly 9000 hectares of nature from land to sea, i twill offer you amazing possibilities of activities !

From L’Estaque to the calanques, Marseille has a 57km coastline dotted with nature sites and parks. Marseille’s ocean heritage includes the Iles du Frioul, Riou archipelago and the calanques from Callelongue to En-Vau. Further inland, Marseille has huge parks for family fun, including Parc Borély, the Parc du 26ème centenaire and Pastré. But Marseille’s real ‘green lung’ is the seven woods which ring the city and take in the Massif de l’Étoile and Garlaban.
