A French diamond in the rough

Would you like to get to know France in a completely different way? Book flights to Marseille and wander through the picturesque streets of the Old Harbour, marvel at the Notre-Dame de la Garde and take a trip to Château d’If. Marseille has a unique character: elegant yet down-to-earth, historic but also modern. In the summer, Marseille's beaches are wonderful places to escape the bustle of the city. And there’s also plenty to do inland of Marseille: the fragrant fields of lavender and charming villages of Provence are just a stone’s throw away.

Historical streets and shiny new museums

Marseille is a city that knows a long history. The Old Harbour is approximately 2,600 years old and for many centuries was the city's economic centre. Today, it is still the most atmospheric district, where you can happily stroll around or take a seat on a terrace. But don’t forget to explore the narrow streets of the historical Le Panier district. Lovers of modern architecture are also catered for: the CeReM and MuCEM museums have given Marseille a new profile. They offer you the chance to get to know life alongside the Mediterranean Sea in all its facets. Marseille is the ideal destination for a city trip and the perfect starting point for a longer holiday in France. Expect to be surprised: book a flight to Marseille now!

Marseille’s speciality

Marseille’s bouillabaisse is without doubt the most famous fish soup in the world and is inextricably linked with this harbour city. This tasty red soup with its difficult name represents a real tradition. You can sample this delicacy in almost every restaurant but the best can be found in the Old Harbour. Sip on a nice glass of wine as you feast away to your heart’s content!
