The scenic surroundings and the natural beauty of the rich architectural and cultural heritage make Marseille an ideal tourist destination. It is the oldest town in France, about 600 BC. There are some of the nicest hotels you can stay and cafes where light meals can be enjoyed at La Canabiere, the main street in Marseille.
Basilica Notre Dame de la Garde is a 19th-century Basilica designed in Romanian-Byzantine style. This is located in the south of Vieux Port and is a great invitation for tourists visiting the region. One really amazes when he sees that the great statue of the Virgin appears to be on the 60-foot tall bell tower of the basilica. You should not miss the chance to look at the sunset views with impressive and spectacular views.
Art lovers will love the Museum of Fine Arts in Marseille (Musee des Beaux Arts), one of France's most beautiful museums. In the left wing of the Palais Longchamp, major works of French, Italian and Flemish schools were built between the 17th and 19th centuries. The museum has a showroom that insists on its impressive drawings.
Marseille's history can not be separated from its close relationship with the sea. Here you will find that the Vieux Port is the starting point for many sights and cruises from all over the world. The beaches near Prado are very popular. You can choose from leaflets offered by the tourist office that highlight the main sights and maps to help you sightseeing.
