Dating back almost two millennia, Marseille, France was once a bustling port town that thrived on commerce. One of the biggest ports on the French Mediterranean coastline, the city no longer functions as a commercial port, but has, instead, transformed into a historically rich tourist spot. The city's long heritage gives it a historical charm with all modern convenience. This feeling, only enhanced by the old port, Vieux Port, attracts thousands of tourists a year hoping to take in Marseilles' many sites. Notre Dame de la Garde, an ancient Roman basilica dating back to 1858 is a focal point in the old port. With cheap car hire at Marseille - Castellane, travel around the city is easy and affordable.
The Vieux Port, formerly a busy hub of commerce, now services cruises and ferries, as well as accommodating the occasional fishing boat. The Vieux Port offers visitors a glimpse at some of the city's older sites including the Bas Fort St Nicholas established by the Knights Templer in the 13th century.
Marseille also offers modern accommodation, fine dining, and nightclubs and bars. The city has built a reputation recently for boasting a very active nightlife.
The Cote d'Azure and the surrounding area are great daytrips to escape the hustle of Marseille. Several beaches can be reached comfortably by car, if you were thinking about purchasing car hire in Marseille.

The nearby archipelago, L'sles du Frioul, features four islands: Ratonneau, If, Pomegues and Tiboulen, which are accessible year round. Ferries leave from the port daily and visit all four islands. Car rental is also available at Marseille Castellane, not far from the old port.
