Hello lovelies! Yes another Marseille post and I’m talking about the top five things to do if you’re thinking of visiting this gorgeous city in the South of France.
5. Wandering Around Le Panier: This is the oldest area in Marseille. Each street here tells a different story and there is always a surprise at every turn. From extensive street art to brightly painted doors and walls, Le Panier is a blogger’s dream. We decided to go for a fish pedicure whilst getting lost in the maze that is Le Panier, watch my instastory highlights to see how that went!
4. The View from Notre Dame De La Garde: This amazing church is set on a hill at the highest point of Marseille. The view from the top is simply breathtaking and definitely worth the hike/drive. I was pretty sure I could even see some of Spain from here haha. We took an uber from our hotel which was barely €15 as pretty much everywhere is easily accessible in Marseille. However, there are buses that go up frequently as well.
3. Crepes All Day: No matter where I am, I’m always on the hunt for crepes, pancakes and anything of that ilk. But of course when in France, crepes are a must. I love a classic ham, cheese and maple syrup/honey crepe because I can never quite make up my mind on whether I want sweet or savoury. This crepe shop had the prettiest signage/ad where tourists like myself can’t resist taking a few pictures (with the Cathedral de la Major in sight), super smart marketing if you ask me.

2. The Vieux port: Marseille’s old port is probably the most picturesque part of the city. There are ferries going back and forth to the other side of the port which is surrounded by waterfront restaurants, churches etc. The view at sunset is said to be ethereal but unfortunately we weren’t able to stick around to see it.
- Full Relaxation Mode: Unlike many people, I’m not a fan of sightseeing for long periods or having back to back activities. I love to kick back, relax and soak in the atmosphere mainly through brunching and a great view. Marseille was so perfect for this as everywhere you turn looks amazing. During this time, I like to edit my photos or get inspiration online which helps me unwind. The view from our executive terrace room at the Intercontinental- Hotel Dieu had a great view of the city and the Notre Dame De La Garde.
