Where to stay in marseille for 4 days!

Hi ! Me and my boyfriend are now in Paris and we are going tomorrow to marseille by train. I'd love if you could give me a hand on where to stay. We are 29 and 33,from paraguay, enjoy eating different things and sort of make a gastronomic tour ourselves, have a drink late at night, ride a bike through the hole city... We are going to be in marseille from tomorrow 5th of June until the 9th when we return to Paris to go back home. Any ideas about quartiers? Thanks !

Oh! Price... Mmm I don't know how much is a regular hotel, we don't want the best of the best, but neither a bad bad place, better if it's a rental apartment in a well located neighbourhood, with easy transport and services.

Here in Paris we are having a blast in Saint Germain (pointing out just as an example of what we look for)

What you are looking for is more like Aix-en-Provence, not Marseille.

So since you have no prebooked accomodations I would definitively switch to Aix: artsy, walk around, night life place...like Saint Germain.

You can always go to Marseille for a day and see essentials, easy train or bus.

Start looking at hotels on TripAdvisor first and if you hesitate on location ask the community. We don't know your price point so you need to do the initial research.

There is no not liking Aix. It is the perfect city. The only thing missing is the Mediterranean... :-D

The Cours Mirabeau at night is very animated. There is no equivalent really in Marseille.

I would also suggest spending a day in Cassis and visit the world renowned calanques, nice boat ride.
