Photo Tour of Marseille, France

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Marseille is located in the south of France, 7-hours from Paris, and is the country’s second largest city. It’s one of my favourite cities to explore outside of Paris. My preferred way to explore Marseille is slowly by foot, although the public transportation is also convenient and efficient.

Start your day off by visiting the harbour where you can find sailboats departing for a morning cruise, fishermen selling the catch of the day and street performers putting on a show.

The architecture in the city is both modern and historical. Either way, it’s worth giving your time. Stop and look at the detail and thought that has been put into the brilliant structures or the small details that make these buildings special.

It’s easy to get lost in the old city which will make you feel like you are on a movie set. The buildings have so much detail and the colours are warm and inviting. Discover the quaint cafes and boutique as you stroll down the narrow streets.

Not to mention the buildings that contain the food such asĀ Les Arcenaulx. This popular restaurant has a lot of character such as the book shelves surrounding the dining area or the old mailboxes that line the front entrance wall.


Marseille really comes to life at night and is a beautiful sight to see.

    We booked a last minute full-day tour to Luberon region. At first we intended to rent a car to drive around, however we were unfamiliar with the region so we changed our mind and booked the tour only 15 minutes before it started. It turned out to be our best way to explore Provence.

    Our tour guide was Khadija, she was enthusiastic and funny and the whole trip was very entertained. We visited Fontaine de Vaucluse, Gordes, Roussillon and Lourmarin. Although Senanque Abbaye was originally not in the itinerary, Khadija managed to make a short stop there so that we could enjoy this famous spot of the region. She also showed us some nice lavender fields and a very good spot to have a panorama view of Gordes, where we stopped for a while to take photos.

    All the villages we visited were very beautiful and cozy, which are must-see in Provence. And we understood more about Provence culture thanks to Khadija. Lots of things to see in just a day though. This tour is the best way to explore Provence if it is your first time here and you don’t stay long in the region (since Luberon villages are up in the mountains and even a good navigator couldn’t tell exactly the way around).

    Overall, we were very satisfied with the tour. If we come back next time, we will stay longer and still choose day-tour of Provence Connection. pc games
