Crossroads of civilizations and trade since ancient times, Marseille possesses a nature, land and sea heritage unique in its diversity. These assets, combined with a city in metamorphosis, have generated a vigorous revival of economic activity and has placed the city among the most popular tourist destinations.
The figures speak for themselves: over 4 million tourists in 2010, 12,000 direct jobs or 5.4% of total employment in Marseille, and over € 700 million of income.
In 2011, the city had 5,182 hotel rooms, 3.6% more than the previous year.
Marseille has also become one of the first ports of embarkation for the European cruise market, an interesting position given that the Mediterranean destination has the fastest growth.
As the top cruise centre in France, with more than one million passengers in 2012, Marseille reinforced its status as first port of embarkation in France with nearly 380 calls to port in 2011 for an estimated income of €110 million.
In less than 15 years, Marseille has tripled the number of Congress days hosted on its territory from 109,000 days in 1996 to almost 300,000 in 2011.
The city now has powerful and functional structures to accommodate some 350 events per year in places as diverse as the Palais du Pharo, the Palais des Congrés in the Chanot Park and the World Trade Centre.
