  • There are places that fascinate us without anything fancy. The old port of Marseille for me is one of them. I find it pleasant to walk on the pier or under the arcades of the dozens of restaurants that offer fish of all types. Very, very relaxing.

  • I love walking along the waterfront brand new and watching the boats arrive and bring their batch of tourists or natives responsible for all sorts of things fish stalls in the morning with a lot of newsboys (hats, glasses...) and the big wheel on the o mbriere where there is good shelter from the Sun in summer and the ferry... everything a story in fact I love my town and its old port

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.
