Discover Marseille and surroundings by car
With a vibrant harbour dating back to 600BC when the Greeks first settled in Marseille and an abundance of urban energy, Marseille is a popular destination with locals and tourists alike enjoying the multiple riverside bars and restaurants. When you pick up a hire car from Marseille Prado, you’ll be able to easily hop from one attraction to the next with top sites including the Basilique Saint-Victor, Basilique Notre-Dame de la Garde and The Cathédrale de la Major of Marseille.
Le Panier, Marseille’s colourful and picturesque old town, is also worth a visit boasting everything from artisan boutiques and gourmet food shops to charming art galleries. The houses with shuttered windows and lines of laundry add to the unique charm of the historic centre with the Town Hall being one of the most standout attractions in the old quarter.
Marseille is also well-positioned for a trip south towards Toulon where you’ll find everything from sandy beaches to hidden shingle coves. The harbour is particularly attractive here with warships and submarines often seen bobbing around in the water. If you’re up for a road trip, follow the coast road east up towards the Côte d'Azur where you can stop off at places like Cannes or Nice.
Driving in Marseille
When in France, drivers stay on the right hand side of the road unless they are overtaking. As a tourist, please take extra care when navigating unfamiliar routes and pay attention to the local speed signs and other signage that will help you get from A to B with ease.
As Marseille is an old city, there are many narrow and one-way streets in the centre which you need to approach with caution. Often, locals park on the side of the road making it tricky to squeeze past, but don’t follow suit and always head to one of the designated parking spots. Paid on-street parking is available although this tends to be limited; for unlimited parking, head to an off-street garage.
