The 2013 European "Capital of Culture," Marseille is the largest port city on the breezy Mediterranean coast and the second largest city in France.
Start off your visit on the 18th (Tue): wander the streets of The Panier, take in the spiritual surroundings of Abbaye Saint Victor, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Basilique Notre-Dame de la Garde, then take a leisurely stroll along Le Vieux Port, and finally contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Cathédrale La Major.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Marseille trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

New Delhi, India to Marseille is an approximately 13-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 4 hours traveling from New Delhi to Marseille. Prepare for a bit cooler weather when traveling from New Delhi in June: high temperatures in Marseille hover around 33°C and lows are around 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Tue) to allow time to drive to Nice.
