Visitor tips for Marseille
Marseille’s Story: Prehistory and Ancient Massalia. The earliest settlements in the area, now know as Marseille, date back to the Paleolithic period (60,000 BC). Residents lived along the Marseille basin which was about the size of the current city.
Top reasons to visit Marseille include the museums. There is something for every artistic taste and attention span with a range of curated artistic styles and artifacts. History buffs head to Fort Saint-Jean, Musée d’ Histoire de Marseille (one of the largest in Europe), the Musée des Docks Romains (Roman Docks Museum), and musée d’Archéologie méditerranéenne (located inside Vieille Charité).
Marseille has been working hard to get itself on the tourist ‘must-see’ list and the Tourist Office now offers many organized visits to different parts of this vibrant city. Apart from the obvious sites, visitors can opt for food-tasting tours. There are also street art walks or lunch on a cruise ship. Alternatively, head behind the scenes at the Marseille Opera and visit the atelier where costumes are made.
