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 outdoors at Calanques and Parc national des Calanques. Museum-lovers will appreciate Carrieres de Lumieres and Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilisations. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Marseille: Cours Mirabeau (in Aix-en-Provence), Palais des Papes (in Avignon) and Le Cassetin du Diable (in La Ciotat). There's still lots to do: take a leisurely stroll along Old Port, look for gifts at 72% Petanque, take in the spiritual surroundings of Basilique Notre-Dame de la Garde, and wander the streets of The Panier.

To find traveler tips, photos, more things to do, and more tourist information, go to the Marseille trip itinerary site .

December in Marseille sees daily highs of 15°C and lows of 5°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
