Short trip to Marseille full of fun and literature

During your stay in Marseille you will discover how lively the city can be: immerse yourself in the colors and lights of the Old Port, where you can admire the seventeenth-century Fort of Saint-Nicolas and that of St-Jean, used as a prison during the French Revolution. Do you want a taste of the most historic and authentic Marseille? Get lost in the alleys of Le Panier district, where you can visit the beautiful Vieille Charité, a Baroque-style building converted from an old hospice. Discover the early Christian Baptistery of the Cathedral de la Major and stroll along Rive Neuve, among neoclassical buildings and typical places where you can taste a delicious Panisse - a focaccia made with chickpea flour!

Marseille

Ancient and charismatic meeting point of history and natural beauty

Founded by the Greeks in 600 BC, Marseille is home to the largest (and oldest) port in France. The capital of Provence has been influenced over the centuries by the coming and going of merchants and travellers, making it a multicultural and charismatic city. Walking along the La Corniche promenade or the narrow streets of Le Panier, you can feel the history of this city. Visit the famous basilica of Notre Dame de la Garde (with an exceptional panoramic view) and the Castle of If (former prison on an island).

  • Stroll through the Old Port
  • Visit Notre Dame de la Garde
  • Enjoy the view from La Corniche
