The 2013 European "Capital of Culture," Marseille is the largest port city on the breezy Mediterranean coast and the second largest city in France.
Get out of town with these interesting Marseille side-trips: Avignon (Pont d'Avignon & Palais des Papes), Cannes (Le Suquet & La Croisette) and Carrieres des Lumieres (in Les Baux de Provence). There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Basilique Notre-Dame de la Garde, take in the dramatic natural features at Calanques, steep yourself in history at Paroisse Cathédrale Saint Sauveur Aix-en-Provence, and see the interesting displays at Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilisations.

To see other places to visit, ratings, where to stay, and other tourist information, use the Marseille attractions app .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are Marseille Provence Airport, Nîmes-Arles-Camargue Airport and Montpellier-Méditerranée Airport. In September in Marseille, expect temperatures between 30°C during the day and 18°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 20th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
