Despite the 1840s relocation of the main commercial docks to the Joliette region, fishing boats, pleasure yachts, and tourist boats continue to thrive at the old harbour. The sides of the harbour that are protected by the forts St. Jean and St. Nicolas, are lined with taverns, brasseries, and cafes.

Top Things to Do in Marseille
A great stop on your Marseille Tour would be the Basilique Notre Dame de la Garde. The most popular landmark in Marseille is this lavish Romano-Byzantine church from the 19th century, which is located at La Garde (154m), the city's highest point. The basilica was constructed on the ruins of a 16th-century fort that was itself an expansion of a 13th-century chapel. It is decorated with coloured marble, exquisite mosaics in the Byzantine style, and murals showing ships travelling under La Bonne Mère's protection. A 12.0-meter-high pedestal with a 9.7-meter-tall statue of the Mother is supported by the campanile, and the summit offers 360-degree views of the city.

Travel Tips for Travelers
Even if Marseille is a fun-loving city, it has a few customs and traditions that must be followed. Furthermore, you have to remember to dress appropriately for the weather as well. Local etiquette deems that bikinis and other swimwear has to be limited to the beaches only, and when you are walking around the city, you can dress as you like. It is recommended that you opt for loose-fitting, flowy clothes as it can get a bit hot. Try not to wear flip-flops as they are not suited for the dusty and uneven pavements. If you want to see the “black sheep” of France, book one of our Marseille Holiday Packages as soon as you can!
