The Marseille-Provence 2013 edition of the Guide du Routard


To celebrate Marseille-Provence 2013, a 107-page Guide du Routard – in colour and with plenty of pictures – has been released to present many of the events in the European Capital of Culture programme.

The guidebook also presents cultural venues renovated or constructed for the European Capital of Culture, including the MuCEM in Marseille, the extension to the Musée Granet in Aix-en-Provence, the extension to the Musée Départemental Arles Antique and the reopening of the Eden Theatre in La Ciotat.

In addition, the guide will focus on the region’s other cultural attractions – places to visit, museums and walking trails. Of course, true to form, there is a selection of places to stay in Marseille and the surrounding region, as well as some great local restaurants where you can discover Mediterranean and Provençal cuisine.

The guidebook is in French.
