Tips for your stay in Marseille
‘Vieux-Port’The Old Port of Marseille is one of the most popular districts of Marseille and has been the beating heart of the city since antiquity. The harbour is still protected by the forts of St Jean and St Nicolas. Just nearby is the ‘Phare de Sainte Marie’ lighthouse, the ‘Théâtre National de la Criée’ theatre and the cheerful Canebière street. Here, you can soak up the authentic atmosphere of the city and enjoy a good glass of wine and delicious seafood in one of the many restaurants.
Marseille bouillabaisseThe traditional fish dish “par excellence” is of course bouillabaisse! There are as many versions of this fish stew as there are fish in the sea, but people in Marseille claim their recipe is the only authentic one. Almost any restaurant in Marseille therefore offers this famous and delicious dish. Book a flight to Marseille with TUI fly and literally taste the southern French atmosphere on your plate!
Notre-Dame de la GardeYou simply cannot miss the main landmark of the city. Thanks to its 60-metre high bell tower, this basilica towers over the city. The enormous statue of the Virgin Mary with baby Jesus on top of the tower can be seen from many parts of the city and at sea. The inside of the basilica is impressive too, boasting a variety of coloured marbles and pictorial mosaics.
Numerous museumsNo lack of museums in Marseille. Museum lovers won’t know where to start. If you must choose, make sure you visit the MuCEM, the Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilisations. This state-of-the-art building is near the historical harbour and exhibits the story of the European and Mediterranean culture from antiquity up to the present day. You can stroll along the lovely gardens featuring cafés and restaurants and walk to the 17th-century Fort of St Jean via a footbridge high above the water.
Flights to Marseille: also for football enthusiastsFootball enthusiasts will definitely feel like a kid in a candy store in Marseille. They can visit the beautiful Stade Vélodrome, the home base of the Marseille football team Olympique Marseille. With a capacity of 67,000, this is the second largest stadium of France. In 2016, six games of the European Football Championship were played here.
Calanques National ParkCalanques National Park with its spectacular chalk cliffs, white sandy beaches and azure blue sea, is definitely worth a visit. The numerous hiking trails appeal to any hiking enthusiast. The park’s most beautiful creeks can be admired by boat. Leave on a mini cruise from the harbour of Marseille and enjoy this marvellous natural wonder!
