Searching for a city-break in France, but do not know where to go? Discover Marseille, an excellent city-break for travel lovers! European Capital of Culture since 2013, grit and grandeur coexist in this old and multicultural port city. The 2nd largest city in France is well-known for its laid-back vibe shaped by its 300 days of sunshine, its old port, and its cool “mistral” wind. There are so many things to see and do in this particularly charming and rebellious city. Come and take a walk along the famous Calanques extending over 20 kilometers and enjoy a breath-taking landscape. Discover Mucem (Museum of European & Mediterranean Civilisation), a museum standing out thanks to its unusual architecture and for literally bridging the new and old Marseille. Walk along with work of art streets in Cours Julien or sit down at the old ramparts of the Fort Saint-Jean where you can look at the sea and enjoy the best sunshine. While traveling in Marseille, do not forget to pass by “Le Panier”, a French dreamscape neighborhood with its narrow streets as well as its pastel-colored shutters and its steep staircases while seeking out its most captivating scenes. Coming to Marseille will leave you with captivating and unbelievable memories. You will only have one desire: coming back!
