But if you're planning on a road trip along the coast, a convertible vehicle may be a fun way to travel through the French Riviera as the weather is usually quite warm but temperatures aren't too high. If you're traveling with the whole family, a sedan is best as it offers enough space for everyone.

French drivers are used to double or even triple-parking on the city's narrow streets, which means it's best to avoid street parking and instead leave your vehicle at one of the many public parking lots around Marseille. One of the best options is the underground garage near the Vieux Port (Old Port). Street parking is metered and usually time-limited, and parking is paid from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday to Saturday. Prices for both on-street parking and parking lots can range between €1.50 ($1.70) and €2.50 ($2.80) per hour.
