Transportation in Marseille


Buses are particularly useful when travelling south along the Corniche, especially the 83. In the centre, the Grand Tour bus leaves from the Vieux Port and stops at 18 tourist attractions. Buy one or two day passes onboard.


The main ranks are at the Vieux Port and the St-Charles train station. Only climb into a car with a “taxi" sign on its roof and check that the meter is working upon departure, or secure a fee.


Walking is the quickest and most picturesque way to get about for short distances. Venture from the Vieux Port to watch steep, cobbled streets and shaded squares make way for grand 19th-century avenues, bustling markets and chic shops.


Marseille's underground network, or 'Métro', is cheap and user-friendly. Two lines cover the centre, running from 5am-10.30pm daily (until 12.30am on Fri and Sat). Tickets are valid on trams and buses within a one hour period.

The A7, A55 and A50 autoroute might lead you into the heart of Marseille, but navigating the city centre requires some patience. The easiest place to park is at your hotel, if it has onsite parking, but there are numerous city centre car parks costing up to €2.50 per hour.
