Major Cruise Lines departing from the Port of Marseille include Costa Cruises, MSC Cruises and Ponant Cruises. The ferry port is Frances largest commercial port with links to Corsica, Sardinia, Algeria and Tunisia.
Marseille’s popular tourist attraction is the picturesque old port (Vieux Port), dotted with fishing boats and pleasure craft, and ringed with boutiques, and restaurants. Nearby Fort Saint-Jean is also worth a visit, and the nearby beach is excellent.
