European Capital of Culture for 2013, the port city underwent a major makeover, with a waterfront facelift, a shiny new tram system, sophisticated hotels, and a galaxy of emerging restaurant stars.

Driving Your Rental Car in Marseille

You have so many options for sight-seeing in this region of France, that it is difficult to single out any particular favourites, but there are some places you should include on your list. An unmissable attraction of Southern Provence, the calanques are a stunning series of limestone rocks that are home to unique wildlife, vibrant fishing villages, and glorious creeks of pure azure water.

The Old Port of Marseille is the city's main attraction, sparkling with boats of all shapes and sizes crammed with the best galleries, architecture, and restaurants. Then there is the Frioul archipelago, about 4km from Marseille, which consists of the islands of Pomègues, Ratonneau, Tiboulain, and If - site of the Château d'If, where the fictional Count of Monte Cristo was imprisoned.

Within Marseille itself, in the 4th arrondissement, the Palais Longchamp houses the city's Musée des beaux-arts and the natural history museum. The adjacent Parc Longchamp is included among the Notable Gardens of France. Take your rental car out of Marseille and head for the Plagesdu Prado, the generic name for the beaches of southern Marseille.
