Like most districts north of Marseille, the 14th suffers from prejudices related to its large number of housing estates and the industrial crisis that hit it following the closure of oil mills during the 20th century. Although due to its history, it is clearly a popular district, it is nevertheless in the midst of a renaissance as deindustrialized spaces are used for the launching of new projects, which revitalizes this urban area. The Marché d'intérêt National has thus established itself in the district of Arnavaux, while the famous Ricard company, a famous institution in Marseille, has established its headquarters there. Finally, the 14th district also has very peaceful residential areas on hills such as the Batarelle from where the view is very pretty. In short, the 14th district, if not the most interesting touristic one, is a district that will flourish in the coming years because other very interesting projects could be created.

When to go to Marseille?

The best time to go to Marseille is in spring or autumn, during the low season. Hotel and restaurant prices are much lower than in summer at this time and the beaches are almost deserted. As for the climate, it is ideal, warm but not too hot, and you can often swim from spring to late November in autumn. Winter is the very low tourist season ñ but the climate remains mild with the possibility of many ñ hiking under the sun. The high tourist season is of course summer, July and August, the roads are crowded and the fares are easily tripled. It is then really necessary to book your stay early if you want to have a place and not leave all your savings there. Marseille is indeed an increasingly touristic city and it is not only appreciated by the French but also by a very large number of foreign tourists. If you go to Marseille in summer, it's the right time for outdoor festivals and you can easily find an exhaustive list of these festivals at the Tourist Office.
