Marseille is a central port on the French Mediterranean coastline. Although it no longer operates as a trading port, the city can trace back its roots as a centre for commerce 2,500 years. The city's long and rich history provides it with many historical sites linking back to its bygone days as a trading port. Most of the notable sites are right near the Vieux Port (Old Port) such as the Notre Dame de la Garde, a basilica built in 1853 in the Roman Byzantine style. Tour the area in style in your own personal vehicle, and book car hire in Marseille here today. It's the most convenient way to explore the surrounding area.
The Vieux Port only functions as a pleasure port now offering cruises to tourists as well as to accommodate a few local fishing boats. The old port has become the city's central area for tourism. Near the front of the old port visitors will find the 'Bas Fort St Nicholas' which was constructed by the Knights Templer during the 13th century.
Marseilles is also well known for being a bit of a party city with a vibrant nightlife, scattered throughout the city. Despite the liberal recreational atmosphere, the tourist areas are quite safe and quiet, and the locals pleasant and helpful.
The neighboring countryside outskirting the city boasts a myriad of attractions as well. The area offers several beaches and the Cote d'Azure is worth a visit for a day trip in your hire car. Plage du Prado and La Corniche, two of the most frequented beaches, offer visitors a great place to sunbathe and enjoy the breathtaking Marseilles cliffs.
The four islands in the nearby archipelago, L'sles du Frioul are also worth a visit. Ferries to each one of the islands: If, Ratonneau, Pomegues and Tiboulen, are available year round.
