  • Excellent not very large museum with artifacts from Egypt, ancient Greece, and things from the Etruscan tribes. Located in the Center de la Vieille Charite. Definitely worth the visit.  more »
  • A gem, hidden in on a place in the city that are already very nice to visit. Nearby is a petanque shop that actually has it all.

  • Well ask when buying your tickets if all of the rooms are open. You paying full price and once on the floors you are told that you will see 3 bathrooms of 5 because of the lack of staff!

  • It's great in families the hique is that on the statutes of Egyptian Antiquities there was not too much description, as the translation of the hieroglyph. Otherwise great!

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.
