On the Table
Essential Marseille details.
Heirloom tomatoes, burrata, focaccia, and
basil with the perfect pairing at Le Tire-Bouchon.
GO With 300 days of sun, Marseille
has year-round appeal. To take
advantage of its Mediterranean
beaches and boating, visit from
April through October - but
avoid August, when many local
spots shut down for summer
holidays. Arrive by train (the TGV
station is in the center of town)
or plane (Marseille Provence
Airport is just 15 miles away).
You'll need at least three days to
check out the street art; explore
the area's limestone calanques
(coves or inlets) by boat or hiking boot; search for treasures
at Maison Empereur, France's
oldest hardware store; sunbathe
at l'Anse de Malmousque; and
be wowed by the architectural
wonder of MuCEM, the Museum
of the Civilizations of Europe and
STAY Housed in an eighteenthcentury hospital, the 194-room
InterContinental Marseille -
Hotel Dieu is just steps away from
the city's port. Its sprawling terrace
serves up some of the city's best
views and hosts soirees throughout the year. At Michelin-starred
Alcyone, don't miss chef Lionel
Levy's one-of-a-kind bouillabaisse
milk shake. The hotel also has a
new 12-passenger yacht available
for day trips to nearby Calanques
National Park. Doubles from $300,
including a welcome amenity, breakfast daily, a $55 dining credit, one
complimentary cocktail per person,
and complimentary spa access.
