This French harbour city along the Mediterranean Sea has been developing into a popular city for both city trips and beach holidays in the recent years. Moreover, the city is full of art, culture and trendy neighborhoods!
The marina is not to be missed: Le Vieux Port. You will of course find the harbour with all its yachts and boats, but it also houses two centuries-old forts. And not to be forgotten is the lighthouse of Marseille. Tourists enjoy all of this and then go down to one of the terraces. Another must see is Notre Dame de la Garde, one of Marseille’s churches. You find it on the hill of the outskirts of Marseille where you’ll enjoy a beautiful view over the city. Both the outside and the inside of the church will leave an impression on you. Definitely worth a visit!
In addition to Notre-Dame de la Garde, Cathédrale de la Major also deserves a visit. This Italian-looking church is beautiful and even better: free to visit! Lesser known is the Basilique le Sacré-Coeur on Avenue du Prado. The interior is really breathtaking and lets you enjoy the peace and quietness.
