Marseille, cultural city break – city centre

Since 2013, Marseille has focused its attention on promoting culture. One of the key cultural spots in the city is the Old Port with a rich mix of museums and other cultural attractions. Start at Fort Saint-Jean and onwards from there to the MuCEM. Then walk past the Villa Méditerranée to get to the Regards de Provence museum set in a former maritime health clinic. Opposite take a few moments to contemplate Marseille Cathedral. After lunch in the Joliette quarter, in the throes of redevelopment, the Vieille Charité cultural complex makes a fascinating visit. Your tour of Marseille concludes at the Friche Belle de Mai, a forum of culture and interaction. An ideal tour for a day in the city.

Istres by Ma cigale est fantastique

The "Porte d’Arles" gives us direct access to the historical centre, which is well worth a visit. I suggest starting by the Tourist Office. This decidedly contemporary building reflects the spirit of the town at the crossroads of tradition and modernity. We will do a little shopping and then take a cultural and gourmet break. We will take a quiet stroll in the Etang de l’olivier gardens before going the other side to the Etang de Berre for a bite to eat.

All for Marseille Marseille for all!

France's oldest city, Marseille overflows with hidden secrets and treasures you will discover as you stroll its ancient streets. Culture takes centre stage for this tour, accessible to all, combining fascinating museums and some of the world's finest architectural feats, such as the now-famous MuCEM museum and Le Corbusier's "Radiant City". Get your fill of Marseille's culture and history with this delightful break, promising plenty of exciting new discoveries!

La pétanque

This sport (yes, Pétanque is a sport, but we'll talk about that later) is an intrinsic part of life in Marseille and has been from generation to generation!

Every quarter has its own boules court and/or boules association, including, of course, a watering hole...
