Cheap flights to Marseille
Marseille is not only France’s oldest city but also its most colourful. And we’re not just talking about all those terracotta roof tiles. So what are we talking about exactly? Well, one of Europe’s most cosmopolitan cities for one, with its mix of French, North African and Spanish cultures. Where busy bazaar-style markets, 17th century cathedrals and an old bustling harbour battle it out for your attention.
And because of its position along the Mediterranean coast, you can expect plenty of fabulous beaches and even the stunningly beautiful calanques, also known as the Mediterranean fjords. Think crystal clear waters, secluded little bays, sheer cliff faces and you’re on the right track. Sounds tempting, doesn’t it?
A wonderful exhibition, 'Picasso and the Arts of Marseille', runs from 27 April to 29 August at MuCEM. For more information visit mucem.org.
Escape the city and visit the medieval hilltop village of Le Castellet, where you can walk down ancient streets, find locally made souvenirs, enjoy the spectacular view and eat at the gastronomic restaurant La Goguette (https://www.facebook.com/ la.goguette .lecastellet/).
