    Things to do

    Beaches: The beaches in Marseille are mostly backed by the urban sprawl, which allows for great city views and access to food, drink and watersports equipment. For larger beaches with more peaceful and natural surroundings, the villages of Cassis, La Ciotat, and Saint-Cyr-sur-Mer have beaches about 15 miles to the southeast.

    Food and drink: There are two traditional dishes that simply have to be tried in Marseille: bouillabaisse seafood stew; and seafood and vegetable aioli – both preferably washed down by the daylong Provencal staple, diluted pastis, an aniseed liquor as common in the south of France as tea is in the UK.

    Outdoor pursuits: Marseille is surrounded by the hills and mountains of Provence, which are great for hikers and bikers to explore. Of course, with 2nd - Panier District villas offering unparalleled access to the sea, watersports are a big part of the outdoor possibilities. This part of the Mediterranean coast has a lot of Calanques, the distinctive cliffs that provide a dramatic backdrop to boating trips.

    Shopping: With Marseille's status as the largest city on the Cote d'Azur, the shopping is unparalleled. With its history as a cultural melting pot, shopping is equally eclectic, with funky New Age alongside classic fashions and discount shops next to exclusive boutique department stores. Marseille's olive oil soap is a popular souvenir to seek out.

    Culture: The 2nd - Panier District is home to the Marseille Cathedral, a wonderful example of Roman/Byzantine architecture. La Vieille Charite Museum is also located here, as is the Chateau d'If of Count of Monte Cristo fame, on an island a couple of miles off Veiux Port.

    Weather in 2nd - Panier District

    Marseille is subject to the Mediterranean climate, which typically consists of hot summers and mild winters, moderated by the sea and the cooling Mistral and sand-laden Scirocco winds, the former from the north, the latter from the south.
