Why Visit Marseille?
Marseille is a port city on the southern coast of France and sits on the Mediterranean Sea. Its location has made it something of a crossroads for immigration and its prominence as a global center for trade dates back as far as 600 BC when it was founded by the Greeks. Today it is both the main trading port in France as well as a popular tourist destination in the region.
La Panier is a little treasure nestled within the bustling metropolis of Marseille. Named for the French word for "the basket," it is an ancient village located on a hill in the center of Marseille. It is the oldest district in Marseille, first settled in 600 BC. Today it is a city center with three quintessential squares that give it the true provincial feel. Tourists enjoy meandering through La Panier, exploring the shops that sell art and local crafts. And, of course, no village in Provence would be complete without the many restaurants and bakeries scattered throughout.
Vieux Port is the old port in Marseille and the location from which all of the city's history has been built. Since its founding over 2000 years ago, the Marseille port has been a crossroads of trade and immigration for much of that time. Today, the port is filled with luxury yachts who either call Marseille home, or who are simply passing through during their owner's travels. It is also home to many fishing and tourist boats. Vieux Port is not just for boat owners, however. The port is also a hotspot of bars, restaurants and cafes where visitors can rest and take in the magnificent views.
Basilique Notre Dame de la Garde
The Basilique Notre Dame de la Garde is an active Catholic Basilica that was built on the foundation of what used to be an ancient Greek fortress. Inside the Basilica is beautiful marble and mosaics. Outside the Basilica rests the crowning jewel of Marseille. At the highest point in the city, visitors can climb the hill and look down on all that Marseille has to offer.
