If you are unsure whether or not you need to apply for a visa, we recommend contacting the embassy or consulate in your country.

Public Transport

The best way to get around in Marseille is by using the very efficient metro system which runs between 6 am and 9 pm. With two lines, it is part of a wider Marseille public transport network (RTM) that includes buses (which run later). The public transport network consist of the metro, buses, trams, trains and ferries. There are different types of tickets depending on your preferences.
