Only got time for a flying stay in Marseille? One of our Première Classe hotels is the perfect base for you to check out all the best bits. Check out Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde, the city’s iconic basilica perched high up on the hill, fondly referred to as “La Bonne Mère”. A stunning view awaits you when you reach the top. Next, head to Le Panier, the oldest neighborhood in Marseille and full of flower-filled streets, brightly-colored buildings, restaurants, museums, and artisan boutiques. To finish off, take a stroll round the Old Port and up the Avenue de la Canebière, two of the city’s top spots for a walk.
Explore all Marseille’s must-see spots during a week in the city. Check out the Calanques de Cassis either by boat or on foot, an idyllic location of majestic limestone cliffs and turquoise waters. The magic continues with a visit to the beautiful yet arid islands of Frioul, and the Château d'If, famous for its role as the setting for Alexandre Dumas’ novel, The Count of Monte Cristo. MuCEM is a must for culture vultures — it’s the very first museum for Mediterranean civilizations in the world. To make the most of a stay in Marseille without breaking the bank, book a room in one of our Première Classe hotels.
