If a relaxing Mediterranean getaway with expansive sandy beaches, flourishing arts and a unique culture sounds like the perfect holiday escape, Marseille must be your next destination. With SWISS or one of our subsidiary airlines, you can book flights from Zurich to Marseille quickly and easily online.
A diverse city with an ancient past, Marseille is home to everything from Greco-Roman architecture, a testament to its Classical heritage, to modern nightlife and, of course, stunning surf and sandy beaches that give the Côte d’Azur region its reputation.
Whether you’ve come to Marseille for the unique cuisine, the history, or the cultural experiences, this metropolis by the sea has something for any traveler of any age and interest. Named one of the European Capitals of Culture in 2013 and the European Capital of Sport in 2017, Marseille’s reputation stands out far and wide.
Sit a spell and enjoy performances at the city’s numerous theaters and other performance venues which include Théâtre Toursky, La Criée, Le Gymnase and more. Music festivals, such as France's Fête de la Musique in mid-June, are the perfect way to take to the streets and live it up – up close and personal.
And no visit to France would be complete without sampling world-famous culinary specialties. Enjoy dishes such as Bouillabaisse, Marseille’s most famous offering, a fish stew made from a variety of local catches. Snap your perfect selfie beneath the Porte d’Aix triumphal arch, or in front of City Hall, a stunning 17th century Baroque building.
Walk along the harbor and enjoy the cool sea breeze and salty air. Guarded by two large forts, the Old Port has a long history and helped shape the city’s prominence in the Mediterranean for thousands of years. Book your flights from Zurich to Marseilles with SWISS and don’t forget to pack your sunscreen.
