Marseille... magical and misunderstood
There’s something irresistible about Marseille. It’s not the prettiest of French cities. It’s not the most chic or cosmopolitan. It’s a bit rough around the edges and lacks finesse, but is comfortable and cool like that pair of jeans you love for the same reasons. Spend two days in Marseille, France, and you will discover a city of surprises. You’ll experience hidden treasures, regional delights, and a vibe that is decidedly NOT Parisian.
EMERGENCY NUMBER: dial 112

WHEN TO GO: Marseille is a big city and never shuts down. While spring and autumn are ideal travel times, the winters are relatively mild and you could quite possibly find yourself in short sleeves.
