Lying on the Mediterranean coast surrounded by stunning Provençal countryside, the vibrant city of Marseille is one of the French Riviera’s most exciting destinations. A bustling city centre set against the sparkling background of the Mediterranean, Marseille is the oldest city in France offering visitors a cosmopolitan blend of history and culture plus some of the most glorious stretches of sandy beach you’ll find anywhere on the French Riviera.
From the bustling bars and cafés of the Cours Julien to the hip boutiques of La Joliette or the beautiful gardens of the Palais du Pharo with their sweeping views over Marseille’s Old Town, each of Marseille’s 16 arrondissements has a charm all its own. While the Old Port with its traditional fish market and colourful wooden boats might be the heart of the city, those in search of a more relaxed experience will enjoy the picturesque scenery and laid back atmosphere of Marseille’s beachfront areas.
The perfect setting to organise a successful event, Marseille has a wonderful selection of spaces available to rent for both private and corporate bookings on a year-round basis. Easily accessible by rail, boat, car or plane thanks to the nearby Marseille Provence Airport, the French Riviera’s balmy Mediterranean climate will ensure that you and your guests have a day to remember while Marseille’s mix of urban and coastal scenery will be the perfect backdrop to your event.
