Hertz at Marseille Airport

Located in south-east France, the sun-drenched city of Marseille is a cosmopolitan melting pot of cultures. With the stylish Vieux Port and the colorful old town among many other attractions, this is a popular destination all year round. Beyond the center, you’ll find sandy beaches, hidden coves and craggy cliffs, providing a tranquil contrast to the bustling harbor.

If you’re heading to this part of the country, car rental at Marseille Airport is the easiest way to get around. Our pick-up point in the airport, located just outside the main terminal building, is easy to find, whether you’re collecting a rental car or dropping one off.

Take a look at our extensive car collection and reserve the vehicle that’s just right for your trip – from spacious SUVs perfect for family vacations to compact city cars tailor made for city breaks.

Driving in and around Marseille

The city of Marseille is 17 miles south of the airport, just 25 minutes’ drive via the A55 or A7 highways. You’ll find plenty of parking lots in the center, especially near the major attractions. One of the biggest is near Marseille Cathedral at 7 Rue Sylvabelle.

For a taste of life on the French Riviera, follow the coastline east to the city of Nice and the neighboring towns. These sunny destinations are around two hours’ drive from the airport, following the A8 east.

Head north from Marseille Airport and you’ll come to the UNESCO city of Avignon in less than an hour. Set along the Rhône river, this medieval city is peppered with stone palaces, cathedrals and bridges from centuries gone by.

As in the US, you drive on the right-hand side of the road in France and speed limits vary according to the weather. In good conditions, you can travel at 80mph on the highways and major routes. This drops to 60mph in the rain and 30mph in fog, when visibility is 50m or less. Unlike the US, there are no free right turns on red lights at junctions – you have to wait for a green light, even if the route is clear.

A quick guide to Marseille and beyond

The second largest city in France, Marseille is a charming destination which has all that you could ask for – gorgeous beaches, historic buildings, dynamic art galleries and delicious restaurants.

Get your bearings

Marseille’s city center sprawls around the refurbished Vieux Port. From the hip quayside, you can enjoy fine dining or hop on one of the regular boats which chug over to the Frioul Islands. You’ll find all kinds of treasures on these rocky outcrops, including the Chateau d'If – a gleaming white fortress surrounded by serene water.

Along the city’s coastline you’ll discover the hilly lands of Le Panier which lead down to the Joliette Docks. These narrow, winding streets are the oldest part of town. There's a real hodgepodge of culture in this southern part of the city, ranging from the 12th-century Abbey of St Victor to 18th-century townhouses.

Cultural highlights

The Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilizations (MuCEM) is a spectacular experience which captures the spirit of modern-day Marseille with its design. Dominating the waterfront between Le Panier and the Old Port, you can easily spend a day exploring the exhibitions and admiring the rooftop views here.

Another architectural masterpiece is the Marseille History Museum. Located by the Old Port, this contemporary building hosts archaeological artifacts dating back to the city's early years and tells its fascinating story through to the present day.

The Museum of Roman Docks (Musée des Docks Romains) is a must-visit. Built on the site of a Roman docks warehouse, this exhibition offers a rare insight into daily life during these ancient times. Inside you can view articles recovered from the Roman era, and authentic dolia – large ceramic containers used to store olive oil and red wine.

Beach life

Sandy beaches are located at the end of La Corniche, a harbor-side walkway, and are particularly popular with kite-flyers and windsurfing fans.

La Pointe Rouge beach is especially lovely in the summertime, boasting gorgeous panoramas along the coast. It’s a popular leisure area for locals and tourists alike, so you’ll find plenty of seafood restaurants to savor after the sun sets.

Day trips from Marseille

Marseille is an excellent base from which to explore the south of France. The UNESCO-protected city of Avignon is a short drive from the airport, famous for its magnificent stone bridge and the Pont du Gard – an awe-inspiring Roman aqueduct with three tiers which was built in the 1st century.

Saint-Tropez is a chic day trip for visitors in the area. Explore the glamor of this tiny seaside village, with its blend of romantic, cobbled streets and flashy mega yachts. It's about a two-hour drive from Marseille Airport and has a lively atmosphere during the summer months.

With the popular destinations of Marseille, Avignon, Nice and Saint-Tropez all within two hours’ drive, renting a car at Marseille Airport is the easiest way to explore this idyllic corner of France.
