This page takes you on a journey to the town of Martigues, our « Provençale Venice ». With its little canals, its coloured façades and its rich heritage, Martigues has a lot to offer.

A few miles from the Côte Bleue, in between the Méditerranée and Berre’s pond, Martigues is a small and charming city where water is omnipresent. Its small canals, its so mediterrannean coloured façades and its many boats make of Martigues a one the highest tourist spot of South of France. With its canals and charming bridge Martigues other name la « Venise Provençale » perfectly captures the city’s beauty. Historic tours, long walks, or just lying on a beach… there is a lot to do in Martigues.

Reach Martigues with the Côte Bleue train

From Marseille, the most pleasant way to reach Martigues is to catch the train along the Côte Bleue. The view on the many coastal towns is just mind-blowing ! The train stops at severals little ports like l’Estaque, Niolon, Sausset-les-Pins or Carry-le-Rouet.

Visit the city on a tuk-tuk

If you feel too lazy to walk, you can discover Martigues on a tuk-tuk ! A motorised rickshaw, the engine is the ideal way to visit the city.

There are two courses offered : The « Tour de ville » which starts from the Calen and goes through the island’s historic part and the quarter of Jonquières. The tour of the « Côte Bleue », starts from the marché de La Couronne car park and goes through the fishing port of Carro, the “carrières Grecques de Baou Tailla”, the Camping Paradis arch (which gave its name to the TV show), the Sainte-Croix beaches and et the Port de Tamaris.

Wander in Martigues island

One of the most beautiful and typical spots of the town is the island quarter. It is indeed located on an island, which is connected to the two town’s edges by different bridges.

Walk on its bridges, in its picturesque narrow streets with their coloured façades, or along its little “port” where the boats float. Start from the quai Brescon, also called “le Miroir aux oiseaux” (the birds looking-glass), depicted many times by famous painters like Delacroix, Corot ou Loubon. Then walk to the island’s bottom, rearranged in 2010, which offers a superb panorama of the sea dominated by a viaduct.

Discover Martigues heritage

Martigues has a lovely heritage that deserves to be seen. Like La Madeleine church, Notre-Dame de Miséricorde chapel which offers a beautiful panorama of the city and Berre’s pond, the “galerie de l’Histoire” which tells about the history of this ancient city, or « la maison à chapeau de gendarme » where the movie « La cuisine au beurre » with Fernandel and Bourvil where shot in 1963. We also come to Martigues to taste its local speciality, la Poutargue, a gourmet dish prepared with mullet dried eggs.

Follow César’s steps

Following the “parcours libre archéologique” (archaeological itinerary), you start from Martigues city centre to reach the Côte Bleue crossing the different antique sites of the city. Among them you will see: the site of Tholon where lie the vestiges of a Gallo-roman town, The oppidum of Saint Pierre les Martigues, Saint Julien les Martigues chapel or “les carrières de la pointe de Baou Tailla” (stones carries) whose pink stones were used to built Marseille landmarks.

Relax in Figuerolles park

With many activities on the site, Figuerolles park is the perfect spot for a family day. Walk, poney or bike rides, “petit train” and even trees jumps… There is also what we call in French a “ferme pédagogique” (an educational farm) and botanic path to learn about nature in Méditérranée.

Enjoy Martigues fine sandy beaches

There are many beautiful beaches in Martigues, ones of the largest “perles de la Côte Bleue”: la plage de Bonnie, du Verdon, de la Saulce, des Laurons, de la Couronne, de Carro and la plage de Sainte-Croix. Most of them won the Pavillon Bleu label for their water quality. Please be aware that they’re very popular, and sometimes overcrowded in Summer. Our advice is to go there only in the morning or at the end of the day.
