The EURO2016 in Marseille guide


Are you heading to the south of France for the EURO2016 in Marseille? In this post you’ll find the best place to eat and drink during your visit and the easiest way to get to the stadium from the city centre.

Vieux Port Marseille

One of the most popular and scenic places to go out in Marseille is Le Vieux Port where you can sit on the terrace of one of the many bars and restaurants and have a cold beer and something to eat looking out over the water. With the sheer number of spots lining all three sides of the harbour, you can’t really go wrong and the hardest part about the whole thing will be deciding where to buy your first pint.

Travelling from the airport to the centre of Marseille

Getting to the city centre from the airport takes 15 minutes by train from Vitrolles to Marseille-Saint-Charles.which is then just 2 stops away from Le Vieux Port on Metro Line 1. This train costs just €5 one-way. Alternatively you could take a shuttle bus to one of three destinations in central Marseille. From the airport to Saint Charles station takes roughly 25 minutes costing €8.50 per adult.
