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

  • "Delay 2 hrs Trip to Marseille"    
    We had been delayed for 2 hours from Paris to Marseille due to bad weather. SNFC compensated us a supplement box which contains some food.  
  • "Sladjana"    
    It was my first time to travel by TGV and my experience was more than expected. Right on time, however with a short delay on return (the train was 30 min late), but disregarding this fact it was very convenient and pleasant.  
  • "Travelling France via Rail"    
    It was a pleasant journey in general. We appreciated the speed of the train. Yet, we hope the hygiene of the toilets could be improved. On our journey from Marseilles to Bordeaux, all the toilets on the train was extremely filthy. It was a long journey and we needed to go to toilet quite often. Thanks for reading my review. Carol  
  • "thank you"    
    thank you very much for this opporinuty staff was really help full but there could be meal service ( a selection or the menu back of the seats ) instead of us going to the restaurant.  
  • "Great way to travel"    
    Absolutely tops for comfort, convenience and value for money. We got a great fare by booking in advance. We thoroughly enjoyed the high-speed parts of the journey - it was great to be kept informed by the cabin monitor of the high speeds we were achieving. Our 'picnic' bags were fresh and tasty, and we enjoyed the drinks options. We arrived rested and relaxed.  
  • "Marseille to Gare De Lyon "    
    It will be good if the announcement can be in English in addition to the French like in most Airline.  
  • "Good in general"    
    Fast, convenient, but getting old. It is time to renew.  
  • "Segment 1"    
    Very good scheduling  
  • "tgv experience"    
    The only drawback i can say is that for a traveller with heavy luggages, it is difficult to carry them upstairs . It is better if there will be easier way to lift the luggages at the upper deck.  
  • "so not tgv LOL"    
    We expected the air condition comfort of tgv, and got RER _ we made the most of it with the great family atmosphere and chatting to everyone in our compartment - it was hot though - that is life!!  
  • "Paris to Marseille TGV"    
    Online booking was fast and hassle-free. Train staff were very helpful and friendly. Easy, on-time, clean, train travel from Paris to Marseille. Would definitely recommend to others.  
  • "Wonderful experitnce"    
    We went to Marseille from Paris by TGV train. We enjoyed the experience on the train.  
  • "pretty good"    
    got us to Marseille pretty quick. no complaints  
  • "Great trip"    
    TGV was great comfy and fast! Recommend first class. Would use raileurope again made the trip much easier having all sorted before we left.  
  • "satisfied"    
    Convenient, comfortable, mild prices when buying in advance (3 months). However, was very surprised, when revealed a lot of first class seats, while I was suggested only 2nd class, thus, more expensive tickets. The only complain- the web site was not user friendly- was forced to contact hot line to purchase the tickets and later to print them (the tickets were sent to my email)
