Event Information:

Marseille celebrates New Years Eve in style each year, and will be no exception. New Year’s Eve in France is known as Saint-Sylvestre, and brings locals and visitors alike out onto the streets to celebrate with parties in local bars and restaurants before watching the spectacular midnight fireworks. New Year’s Eve is also typically celebrated with a feast in the hours leading up to midnight called Le réveillon de la Saint-Sylvestre. Away from the city, in Southwestern France it is traditional to march out to the vineyards by torchlight following the midnight mass.

Places to stay are at a premium for the New Year, so booking your hotel well in advance is always recommended. Among the most popular places to stay in Marseille are the Grand Hotel Beauvau Marseille Vieux Port, Ibis Marseille Centre Bourse, Hotel Ibis Marseille Gare Saint Charles, Escale Oceania Marseille Hotel and the Radisson Blu Hotel Marseille.

Marseille has been designated as European Capital of Culture in so has particular reason to provide a memorable party. Marseille has a large number of theatres, including la Criée, le Gymnase and the Théâtre Toursky. There is also an extensive arts centre in La Friche, a former match factory behind the St-Charles station. The Alcazar, until the 1960s a well known music-hall and variety theatre, has recently been completely remodelled behind its original façade and now houses the central municipal library.

Marseille's main cultural attraction was, since its creation at the end of the 18th century and until the late 1970s, the Opéra. Located near the Old Port and the Canebière, at the very heart of the city, its architectural style was comparable to the classical trend found in other opera houses built at the same time in Lyon and Bordeaux. In 1919, a fire almost completely destroyed the house, leaving only the stone colonnade and peristyle from the original façade. The classical façade was restored and the opera house reconstructed in a predominantly Art Deco style, as the result of a major competition.

One of the most popular places to head to watch the fireworks is the Old Port or Vieux-Port, the main harbour and marina of the city. It is guarded by two massive forts (Fort St Nicolas and Fort Saint Jean) and is one of the main places to eat in the city. Dozens of cafés line the waterfront. The Quai des Belges at the end of the harbour is the site of the daily fish market. Much of the northern quayside area was rebuilt by the architect Fernand Pouillon after its destruction by the Nazis in 1943.
