  • This castle in the Park of the same name is a museum that offers a beautiful collection of porcelain and art furniture. Resting place for the owners on the beach there is a symbolic monument of the great era of the city. At the same time as the Park is worth a visit

Where to stay in Marseille

The Old Port is near the water, seafood restaurants, and the not-to-be-missed museums. Hotels with sea views come with a price tag to match, though. For more affordable accommodations and local character, check out hostels and rental apartments in the Panier district. The Canebière neighborhood is in the heart of the action. For a more nature-oriented locale, a hotel near Garde Hill offers the nearby botanical gardens.
