Looking for discovery, beautiful things and beautiful moments? You don’t have to go out of the area to find an interesting destination. Marseille is a city of the Provence Alpes Cotes d’Azur region which has something else to offer you than the fame of the Olympique de Marseille. So, I propose you today to discover with me a small top 5 of the places you must visit in Marseille.
My top 3
I recommend you to start your visit by the old port, it is indeed a very popular tourist destination, and you will quickly understand why. Indeed, the Old Port is the prestigious theater of the history of Marseille, the historical and cultural center of the city.
The second thing to see, Notre Dame de La Garde is one of the must-see places in Marseille, especially when it comes to churches. Get your feet ready, walking up to the church is an experience to be had, even if the bus can save your life on the way.
Third place, the cornice for a walk by the sea, which I advise to do in the late afternoon when the sun is milder. A lot of monuments are waiting for you during this walk or bus ride, it’s up to you.
What’s left to see
I also recommend you to visit the Parc Borely, a green space certainly very frequented, but which has all its potential. Indeed, to discover the beautiful rose garden and the botanical garden, which is very rich and with themed areas, it is worth the detour.
Finally, finish your visit with the calanques, a rocky massif of about twenty kilometers, which extends from Marseille to Cassis. You can choose to go there on foot, very good for your health, or to discover it by boat, as you wish.
