Best time to visit Marseille, France?

  • We recommend traveling to Marseille in the early fall when temperatures are warm and weather is still dry but room rates are cheaper. During this month, an accommodation for two costs approximately $85 per night. That's $20 less than what you would have paid in August. Temperatures are in the mid 70s, just a bit colder than the average 80°F you could get during peak season.
  • In Marseille, tourism peaks during the summer so expect higher lodging rates if you go around that time. If you're on a budget, try avoiding the Tour de france week (July 21st to August 1st) and the Ascension week (May 9th - 14th) since accommodation rates peak the most during these times.
  • Don't forget to bring an umbrella if you go from October through December, it is the rainiest time of the year in Marseille.
