4 good reasons to visit the Bouches-du-Rhône area
BECAUSE IT'S A 3-IN-1 EXPERIENCE!
The Bouches-du-Rhône area promises you three travel experiences in one... Marseille, the cosmopolitan city on the Med, charming Provence with its picturesque scenery and Camargue, with its endless beaches and wild landscapes as far as the eye can see. And these three very different territories are all located within less than 2 hours of each other!
BECAUSE THERE'S ALWAYS SOMETHING NEW TO SEE
The European Capital of Culture Year in 2013 prompted a cultural and touristic boom and the emergence of many new museums, luxury hotels, etc. The impetus is continuing today, with this year's Marseille Provence European Capital of Sport and the upcoming MP2018 cultural project entitled "Quel amour!"
BECAUSE THE WEATHER IS GREAT
With over 300 days of sunshine a year, the Bouches-du-Rhône is easily France's sunniest destination!
BECAUSE IT'S EASY TO GET HERE
Around 130 direct flights to and from Marseille-Provence airport, 3 hours by train from Paris, 3½ hours from Geneva, 4¼ hours from Barcelona and 5½ hours from Brussels: an ideal destination for a long weekend or touring holiday!
