The port of Marseille is one of Europe’s busiest cruise destinations. Situated in the Western Mediterranean cruise route, the city attracts some of the world’s biggest cruise ships. Although the ships dock just outside the city center, avoiding crowds in the southern French city means keeping an eye out for cruise ships. The city is busy throughout the summer. Best time to avoid crowds in Marseille is just outside the peak season away from school vacations.
