Driving in Marseille
When driving in a new location such as Marseille, it is really important to take extra care as you navigate an unfamiliar road network. In the city centre, roads can become narrow and as there are many one-way systems you need to read local signage carefully.
As you drive around, you’ll notice that locals often park on the side of small side streets making it tricky to squeeze past. While this may sometimes seem like the easiest option, always head to one of the designated parking spots which are typically well-signposted. Paid on-street parking is limited with unlimited parking being restricted to off-street garages.
