The 2013 European "Capital of Culture," Marseille is the largest port city on the breezy Mediterranean coast and the second largest city in France.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Marseille: Arenes de Nimes (in Nimes), Carrieres des Lumieres (in Les Baux de Provence) and Pont du Gard (in Vers-Pont-du-Gard). Spend the 31st (Sun) exploring nature at Parc national des Calanques. And it doesn't end there: take in the spiritual surroundings of Basilique Notre-Dame de la Garde, take a leisurely stroll along Le Vieux Port, get engrossed in the history at Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilisations, and take in the dramatic natural features at Calanques.

To see traveler tips, photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Marseille travel planner.

If you are flying in from Italy, the closest major airports are Marseille Provence Airport, Nîmes-Arles-Camargue Airport and Montpellier-Méditerranée Airport. In May, daytime highs in Marseille are 26°C, while nighttime lows are 14°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 1st (Mon) so you can travel back home.
