Hiking in the Calanques

The Calanques are best appreciated out of season, away from the crowds and the heat wave. In autumn, the summer is still long and hot. The Calanques can be discovered by boat or kayak, but also on foot, easily accessible from downtown.

MX, a unique pastis experience

Would you like to learn everything about the famous aniseed drink made in Marseille? This space of more than 1,000m2, entirely dedicated to this southern flavor, is divided into several areas: the MX Experience, an immersive museum that explores the composition and production of pastis, a bar that offers mixology workshops to learn how to make aniseed-flavored cocktails, a restaurant that changes chef every three months to vary its menu, and a decompression area with a bowling alley and a foosball table, accessible to all.

Dinner on a rooftop:

You shouldn't leave Marseille without dining on one of the city's many terraces to watch the sunset or have a drink. There is something for everyone, the more urban Ciel with a view of Notre Dame de la Garde, the R2 for wild parties to the sound of DJs, the Bords de mer with a view of the Mediterranean or the bistro plage for a Marseilles atmosphere!
