The Old Port and its fish market;

Do you still have time? Then visit the Panier district, in the 2ᵉ arrondissement or the Cours Julien, two colorful, lively and typical districts of the city of Marseille.


  • Second day: heading for the creeks

Taking a bath in nature in Marseille is possible. Go swimming in the clear water creeks of the Calanques National Park, take a boat trip to Frioul to see the Château d’If, go hiking or snorkeling: there is no shortage of activities! The fauna and flora are very rich in Marseille. Explore them on foot, by bike, by kayak or even by boat.


  • Third day: see the must-see sites

Back in town for this last day! Among the places to see absolutely in Marseille, the good mother Notre-Dame-de-la-garde is placed in the top 3. Located at 154 m in height, it overlooks the city and offers a breathtaking view. Also go see the Palais Longchamp and its impressive architecture or the Vélodrome stadium. You can also visit the Vallon des Auffes, a picturesque port with slightly out of the way fishing huts and, nearby, the Corniche JF Kennedy!
