Great Tour costing 13 Euros. The Tour takes you into the stadium, changing rooms, Players tunnel, The Media rooms, ETC However, Only French language tours are available. The other disappointment was there is no Trophy room to visit to see previous Cups won.

A masterpiece in the heart of the city, easily accesible by public transportation. With 67,000 seats, it hosts mainly football games (Olympique de Marseille) but also rugby games and concerts. Went to see the Euros 2016 there, it was simply amazing, what a great atmosphere...More

Great venue but it was let down by the rude security person who was very angry about us bringing our bikes. He was very unhelpful. The velodrome itself was great. Not a huge choice of food and drink but ok. Great seats and good views

Entering was nice and easy. Lots of stairs to the top! The only food station for our stand was right at the bottom so a long trip down for a drink. A great atmosphere.

Absolutely a place to visit.. if you love sport or even if you don't! You can go directly with the Metro 1 (red), stop Prado. The architecture is something stunning, you enter in a sort of city temple with more or less 67000 seats. I...More

We were lucky enough to watch a couple of Euro games here (including Iceland vs. Hungary) and an OM match. It's a gorgeous stadium with an equally beautiful backdrop of mountains and the Med. Seating is comfortable and easy to find. My only complaint was...More

Big beautiful neo architechtural structure. But not more you can just look at it from the outside and then go on with your trip.

A must do, to get the most out of Marseille in a short time, is the Petit train, which can be found on the right side of the Old Port, when looking from the Big Wheel. There are two tours to do, one taking in the old town... More

The area around the hotel is reasonably quiet. There is a street market on the main road just outside the hotel every Monday to Saturday. You could stay closer to the town centre (around the Vieux port, but getting back to... More
