The 2013 European "Capital of Culture," Marseille is the largest port city on the breezy Mediterranean coast and the second largest city in France.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Palais des Papes and Carrieres des Lumieres. Head to La Ferme du Vallon Velaux and Tapiezofor plenty of shopping. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Marseille: Cassis (Bestouan Beach & Plage du Corton), Stand-Up Paddleboarding (in La Ciotat) and Le Caviste de Maussane (in Maussane-les-Alpilles). There's much more to do: explore the striking landscape at Calanques, enjoy the sand and surf at Grande Plage du Lavandou, get a taste of the local shopping with Villa Noailles, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Basilique Notre-Dame de la Garde.
