The 2013 European "Capital of Culture," Marseille is the largest port city on the breezy Mediterranean coast and the second largest city in France.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Marseille: Avignon (Palais des Papes, Pont d'Avignon, & more), Aix-en-Provence (Granet Museum, Cours Mirabeau, & more) and Stand-Up Paddleboarding (in La Ciotat). Spend the 5th (Tue) exploring nature at Parc national des Calanques. There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Basilique Notre-Dame de la Garde, get outside with Sentier sous marin, take in the waterfront at Old Port, and admire the masterpieces at Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilisations.

In June, daily temperatures in Marseille can reach 83°F, while at night they dip to 63°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 9th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
