Musee des Docks Romains, Marseille

4.1
This Roman commercial warehouse is one of the few that exists worldwide. During the war, in 1947 the ancient docks were accidently discovered. It was at this site, the Musee des Docks Romains was built in 1963. You can marvel at the ancient Roman agricultural resourcefulness when you visit the museum and take a closer look at the 30 dolia or large ceramic roman jars, which they used to store wine or oil. You can also view many articles that were discovered during underwater excavation of shipwrecks near the Marseilles’ harbor.

    It is free and interesting, contains well preserved hollows grosse referred a few intact, but everything revolves around a room by a few square meters, come in, turn around and get out in 5 minutes! I was disappointed in the fact that way on purpose thinking it was a much larger Museum and found a tiny room, but otherwise very satisfied because free and still very nice. The ladies at the entrance didn't speak English as I've noticed in a lot of other people in accommodation and food service activities, Marseille certainly isn't Paris but will still have enough to claim to have people who speak a minimum (even just the 2-3 phrases survival in that scope in which they are located) to English where there is definitely contact with tourists

    This small museum is free. It is especially the vestiges of the old Roman docks of the city. It is possible to contact the Museum of the history of Marseille to organize very interesting guided visits (even for 1 or 2 people)!

    Good little museum, the only problem was that there were no translations from French. But it is free to enter

    I could not believe that a museum can impress me in this way, but here on, it happened. For so many years I live in this city and I finally found time to enjoy an enriching tour. It was good that at the entrance, a back lit panel offers a historiographical information, that allowed me to better understand this unique space.

    Free tour that allows to discover a few old remains of the port and the cargo of several wrecks. Interesting.

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.
