    Things to do

    Beaches: The beaches of Marseille are on the doorstep of the majority of accommodation in 7th - Vallon des Auffes, but are typically very busy in the summer. However, there are plenty of other larger and emptier beaches within easy driving distance of the city.

    Food and drink: Marseille is the capital of Provence, and thus the epicentre of its cuisine, with several dishes unique to the region. Don't forget to partake of pastis, an incredibly common aniseed liquor, as strong as whisky but mostly drank diluted to taste.

    Outdoor pursuits: With the beaches and a proliferation of marinas so close by, the choice of watersports is extensive, with fishing and boating being particularly popular. The mountains and hills surrounding Marseille make for great hiking, horse trekking and mountain biking.

    Shopping: The main shopping areas are in central Marseille, which the 7th arrondissement borders. With Marseille's position as the 2013 European Capital of Culture, much pedestrianisation work was undertaken, creating great shopping concourses among the boutiques and markets of the Old Port.

    Culture: Again with the 2013 appointment, Marseille upgraded and refurbished many of its museums and theatres, so cultural tours have become even more appealing. Not to be missed in the 7th District are the historic St. Victor's Abbey and the two forts guarding the harbour mouth: St Nicolas and Fort Saint Jean.
