While you're there

Marseille, the capital of Provence region

Marseille is the oldest French city and the second most important city in France after Paris. Marseille is located on the southeast coast of France in the Provence region. The city is known for its harbour, sunny climate and beautiful coastline. The natural beauty of Marseille is reflected by its parks and calanques. This explains why Marseille has retained a particular village feel. From the historic Panier district to the Romanesque churches, the city is full of treasures. The famous Notre Dame de la Garde, which overlooks the city from the top of a hill, is not be missed.

Any visit to Marseille should start with the Notre Dame de la Garde. You will be able to admire the extend of this magnificent French city. Afterward head to the Abbey of Saint Victor to see its fortified tower, then go the Old Port and relax on the sunny terraces watching the fishing boats. While you are in the Old Port, go to the fish market and have a look at the variety of fish. The Old Port is just in front of the Panier district (Old Marseille). This was where the Greeks first laid the foundations of the city some 2,600 years back. Discover the city hall, museums, the Place du Moulin and the Accoules church. On the next day head to the Corniche and admire the beautiful beaches at its foot.

One word – Bouillabaisse! Try this local speciality, a fish-based stew served with garlic and saffron sauce. The Panier area is a great place to enjoy a glass of Provençal rosé on a terrace before heading to Rue La Maronnaise for cocktails at a beachside bar.

The city centre is filled with shopping areas. You can go to Paradis, Grignan, Montgrand and Sainte street, which are semi pedestrian streets. Trendy shops are in Saint-Ferreol street. Le Cours Julien and Place Jean Jaurès are great places to pick up some interesting books, visit the colourful markets while you’re there.

Customer reviews

  • "Paris Marsielle Journey"    
    The train stations are neat and clean information desk people were happy to help and the trains were clean even though the trains were no smoking trains some people did smoke inside toilet and sprayed deodorants inside.The station announcement were only in french would be better atleast 2 language preferably English for Asian people.  
  • "Arles to Hyeres "    
    Went to Hyeres from Arles, with a change of trains in Marseille. Fine weather and it all worked very well. Trains were on time and not to many people onboard. Traveled in the beginning of October  
  • "Comfort and convenience "    
    Great experience and comfortable ..will do moire rail travel in my next trip.  
  • "Good but beware of thieves"    
    I was extremely happy with the whole process, I dont really speak French, but found the booking process was smooth and clear and easy to understand. I had all information and didnt have to seek help at the train stations. The trains were clean and comfortable and the staff on the platform were helpful. However, I think the carriages could be better labelled, and the security improved as I had things from my luggage stolen while on the train.  
  • "Very bad services "    
    Irresponbile for my request for documentary proof of train service disruption and refund of appropriate of fare due to disruption of train service and continue the journey but by coach.  
  • "Excellent"    
    The trip was excellent, without any problem, everything on time, and very comfortable, cheaper than a plane in the same total time  
  • "Marseille to Paris - pleasure!"    
    First trip for me on the TGV. On time. Clean. Fast. Comfortable. I really enjoyed my trip and only wish we had this train service in the USA! Will definitely ride again. Thanks.  
  • "Go rail in Europe"    
    The TGV is undoubtedly the best way to see Europe within a limited time frame. The punctuality is impeccable . However having said that it is important that one has to be careful of the connecting trains that connect to the TGV . In case the connecting trains are delayed TGV has no allowance on the departure time.  
  • "Luggage bin too small"    
    It was fast but there were just too many stops on the way to Marseille. The luggage storage was too small for the number of passengers in the coach, especially with some travellers who have big suitcases.  
  • "Good experience"    
    As always europe trains are on time!  
  • "Evertything worked"    
    I think it was a good idea to book the tickets in advance - the system at the train stations can be confusing. We had the print at the station option, and managed to make it work.  
  • "excelent service "    
    Excellent on time service and purchasing. Online was perfect and easy to use  
  • "Better than Eurostar "    
    We loved traveling in the upper level coach and enjoy the buffet cars on these trains. Seats are comfortable with footrests.  
  • "euro trip by train"    
    excellent in all aspects. full 5 *s  
  • "Good punctual service"    
    I travelled second class on TER from La Brillanne Oraison to Briancon. It was a punctual, efficient service. The second class carriage was sufficient but not luxurious.
