Top 3 things to do in Marseille
1. MUSÉE DES CIVILISATIONS DE L'EUROPE ET DE LA MÉDITERRANÉE
Designed by architect Rudy Ricciotti, the new Musée des Civilisations de l’Europe et de la Méditerranée is one of the jewels in Marseille's cultural crown.
2.VIEUX PORT (OLD PORT)
One of the most picturesque spots in all of France, Marseille's spruced up Vieux Port is the beating heart of the city. The port's expanded walkways and refurbished wharves make room for pedestrians to easily enjoy regular sculpture exhibitions, street musicians, concerts, and dance performances held throughout the warmer months. For a glimpse of old Marseille, drop by the fish market at the top of the port, where fisherman offer the catch of the day.
3.Day Trip to the Calanques
One of the loveliest trips out of Marseille is to hop on a boat and do the calanques – the limestone cliffs and creeks stretching 20 miles to the south of the city.
