The cost includes VAT and the tip, and you can pay the driver by credit card. If you prefer to rent a car, seven car-rental agencies have desks at the airport, including Hertz, Europcar and Avis.
Marseille has a typical Mediterranean climate. Summers are dry and hot, while winters are mild and humid. July and August are the hottest months, with high temperatures around 30Â°C. December through February are the coldest months, with average temperatures around 12Â°C. The mild weather means that you can visit Marseille at any time of the year, but the summer months feature a number of popular outdoor events, including the FÃªte de la Musique, or World Music Day, in June.
Marseille offers many historical attractions and cultural experiences. Tourists flock to see Notre Dame de la Garde, the MusÃ©e des Docks Romains and the MusÃ©e d'ArchÃ©ologie MÃ©diterranÃ©enne. Sightseers enjoy la Corniche, a walkway by the sea, the Vieux Port, or old harbour, and the famous CanebiÃ¨re Avenue that runs along the harbour. Boulevard Longchamp and Palais Longchamp are also great attractions to visit, and if you are travelling to Marseille in the warm weather months, the Festival de Danse et des Arts Multiples de Marseille is a dance festival that lasts all summer. Just outside of town is the Calanques, a series of miniature fjords that features a spectacular walk along the coast from Cassis to Marseille. The ChÃ¢teau d'If, the prison structure made famous by the novel â€˜The Count of Monte Cristoâ€™ by Alexander Dumas, is located on an island just outside of Marseille.
