Marseille, a sunny destination for all seasons
With 170 days of sunshine every year, Marseille can be visited in all seasons to take advantage of a beautiful climate. Whether you’re heading off for a weekend in autumn, winter, spring or summer, this city in the southern region offers a veritable havre of discovery for off-season break lovers or families looking for a weekend in the sun during the school vacations.
In summer, temperatures climb to around 30°C. Tourists then enjoy sunbathing on one of Marseille’s many beaches and swimming in the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean.
