To truly discover Marseille is to discover the rich heritage that lies here. Experience the city at its most traditional level by visiting Notre-Dame de la Garde, the Panier district and the Saint Nicolas Fort in the Old Port. Explore the rich culture by visiting the fortress of Château d'If, once a prison, now a popular tourist destination, helped by it being one of the settings of Alexandre Dumas’, legendary novel, The Count of Monte Cristo. Continue your cultural journey of Marseille by entering one of the 20 museums on offer which cover all historical periods. See what performances are on at one of the 42 local theatres or take in local and international films at one of the 7,000 cinemas. Added to this is the host of festivals hosted in Marseille including the Jazz Music Festival, the Documentary Film Festival and the Festival of Sacred Music among others.
