Enjoy a stay at the Kyriad Marseille Convention Center so you can attend an Olympique de Marseille (OM) football match at the Vélodrome! The second largest stadium in France after the Stade de France, the Vélodrome, renamed the Orange Vélodrome since 2016 by naming contract, welcomes not only OM matches, but also international rugby matches and large-scale concerts such as the Rolling Stones concert in 2018. Its inauguration took place on the occasion of the Football World Cup in 1938. But its name comes from another discipline because until the 1980s, it was a track dedicated to cycling competitions around the playing surface. With an initial capacity of 35,000 seats, the stadium has undergone several extensions. Prior to the 1998 FIFA World Cup, the venue had grown to 60,000 open places, and by the time of the 2016 European Football Championship, the capacity was further increased by 7,000 seats. Nowadays, the stadium is partly covered. Even if you are not a football fan, attending an OM match at the Velodrome is a great experience!
Are you visiting the Kyriad Marseille Blancarde Timone? Do you want to relax in nature while staying in the city center of Marseille? Head to parc Longchamp. Located in the heart of the city, this 12 hectare park is a haven of peace, with its majestic fountain. Every year, in July, it hosts the five continent Marseille Jazz festival. If you are in the city at this time, do not miss it: the biggest names of jazz live side by side in a relaxed atmosphere. The palais Longchamp, the masterpiece of the architect Henri Espérandieu and home to two museums: the Museum of Fine Arts and the Museum of Natural History. Leaving the park by the main gate, take Longchamp Boulevard, a long semi-pedestrian street lined with plane trees, which is a pleasant walk to the Réformés district at the top of the Canebière. At the end of the boulevard, Les Danaïdes, a true Marseille institution, welcome you on a large terrace under the plane trees, with a view of the fountain of the same name. This large Parisian brasserie is also pleasant in winter, with its red benches and zinc counter.

From your Kyriad Marseille Palais des Congrès, head to the Old Port, then embark on a speedboat to discover this exceptional site by the sea. Depending on the time you have, you can choose between two tours - the Essential or the Integrality - with a duration of 2hrs and 3.5 hrs respectively. Before embarking, make sure you are well equipped (sunglasses, sunscreen, hat, water bottle) and plan what supplies to take during the cruise. Once on the boat, sit on the port side to make the most of the view of the coast. Admire the mouth of the port, the Corniche and the Frioul Islands, the Prado, the Red Point and finally, Les Goudes, the last village of Marseille which is the gateway to the calanque.
