Averages for Marseille in April
Marseille, France, boasts a prime location overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. It’s a huge city, not only being the second largest in France, but also being the largest city and the largest commercial port along the Mediterranean coastline. The port is one of the busiest in Europe, and many imported products throughout the country will have arrived via the Port of Marseille.
Spring well and truly arrives into Marseille in April, bringing both good and bad news in terms of weather. The good news is that temperatures start to heat up, and highs of up to 20 degrees Celsius aren’t uncommon. Lows average around 8 degrees, so it’s not quite summer yet. The bad news is that Marseille is particularly vulnerable to the April showers, and rainfall picks up this month, with levels similar to those in mid winter; around 50 mm. These rains stick around until the summer months.
Due to its coastal location, Marseille is a top diving and snorkelling destination on the Mediterranean. Plongee Phoceenne offers both of these water based activities, providing the chance to discover the unique and colourful sea life off the coast. Trips include refreshments and underwater photographs to keep as souvenirs. For those who aren’t qualified to dive, this company also offer open water diving courses from £320.
La Fabrique is a one of a kind bar and restaurant in Marseille, appearing more as a sophisticated New York apartment than a French eatery. The restaurant is decorated in a mix of traditional dark woods and modern leather furnishings, and offers up traditional French inspired cuisine. In the summer months, patrons have the option to sit on the terrace and enjoy the views with a glass or two of wine.
The 2* Hotel Lutia offers some of the most value for money accommodations in the city centre, with rooms costing from £48 per night. The hotel is reasonably small, with just 27 rooms, all designed with contemporary and minimalist style. Rooms include LCD TVs and fridges, making them far more luxurious than other 2* hotels in the area.
