The 2013 European "Capital of Culture," Marseille is the largest port city on the breezy Mediterranean coast and the second largest city in France.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Basilique Notre-Dame de la Garde and Grotte de Sainte Marie Madeleine. Step off the beaten path and head to Palais Longchamp and Abbaye Saint Victor. Step out of Marseille with an excursion to La Croisette in Cannes--about 1h 50 min away. Spend the 20th (Mon) exploring nature at The Camargue. There's much more to do: explore the wealth of natural beauty at Parc national des Calanques, explore the world behind art at Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilisations, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Vincent de Paul Church, and stroll through Palais du Pharo.

To see maps, traveler tips, and tourist information, go to the Marseille trip itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from Italy, the closest major airports are Marseille Provence Airport, Nîmes-Arles-Camargue Airport and Montpellier-Méditerranée Airport. In January in Marseille, expect temperatures between 14°C during the day and 4°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
