A must do if good exhibition on, else you can still enter into the complex to see the views and the outside, for free.

An awful day to visit Marseille with torrential rain and considerable flooding that meant that the little train was out of action and the open top bus not an attractive option. What to do? A museum obviously. This new museum was highly recommended by French...More

The combination of the old fort and the very modern museum is brilliant. We spent hours just walking around the outside of the combined structures. Kudos to all the architects involved in this transformation. Did not have time to visit the exhibits but, to be...More

At the entrance to the old harbour, take a moment to watch the fishing boats come in and out as they have done for hundreds of years. A very evocative place and just enormous. Walk up to the basilica hiding behind it.

The outside areas are free. You are persuaded to buy tickets to exhibitions including one about the history of the Fort. If entering from Vieux Port be aware of the very steep climb which could be avoided if entering from other side. No warning notices...More

The building is right on the harbour of Marseille. Fantastic architectural design. I saw the Ai Wei Wei exhibition which was on and the space was excellent for showing his type of art. There was also an exhibition of the history of the Mediterranean on...More

What else to do? (2 Replies)
Hi, looking for advice on interesting activities or sites in or around Marseille this Sunday. I should note that we have already been to the Mucem, walked thoroughly around the port and rode the ferris wheel, visited the Notre Dame Basilica, walked and shopped on Le Canebière, strolled Le Panier, and made the requisite day trips to the Calanques and to Cassis. Have we done everything? Would really appreciate some thoughts.

Best Marseille neighborhood to rent apt.? (5 Replies)
My wife and I will be spending 4 nights in Marseille at the beginning of September. We won't have a car. We'll be using Airbnb for accommodation, but I'm unsure which neighbourhood to book in. Our itinerary has us going to all different corners of the city. We'd like to visit Le Panier, MUCEM, Longchamps, Notre Dames, the Canabiere, and the Corniche, with day trips to L'Estaque and a train trip on the Cotes Bleue line. We'd like to stay somewhere central, where we can accomplish most on...More

There is a inexpensive shuttle bus that runs to Gare Saint Charles, then taxis.
