A weekend in Marseille is the perfect opportunity for a decadent gourmet stopover. The first day, stroll through the Phoenician city. Start by visiting Old Port, la Canebière, and Notre Dame de la Garde. Try a bouillabaisse at one of the Old Port restaurants. The second day, embark in pursuit of one of the great wonders of the nature: Les Calanques. You can hike, climb, dive, bask on a beach and swim in the blue waters of the Mediterranean.
During your visit to Marseille, stroll downtown, explore Old Port and La Canebière, then admire the Church of Notre-Dame de la Garde. Head to the city hall and explore the historic district of Panier. A trip to Marseille should include a visit to the unmissable Château d'If. Consider visiting Fort Saint-Jean and its Museum of Civilizations, and then catch a game at the Vélodrome stadium. With a full week in Marseille, you'll be able to enjoy the city but also its nearby area. Find our Kyriad hotels in Gémenos for an even deeper exploration of the regional wonders.
Don’t hesitate to bring the whole family to Marseille, as the city has earned the “Family Plus” label, meaning it also caters to its young visitors, with dedicated entertainment and infrastructure: beaches, playgrounds, scavenger hunts, themed tours… If you head a bit outside the commune, a hike through Les Calanques and a dip in the water should also satisfy both kids and grown-ups: Children can’t get enough of the outdoors. Don’t forget to enjoy local cuisine and culinary specialties like a family dinner around a bouillabaisse at the restaurant of your 3-star Kyriad hotel.
