Step 1MarseilleConquer the Mediterranean town
Marseille is an accent, a Vieux-Port and sun but above all, it has a fan soul. There’s no way you can talk about sport without mentioning the Stade Vélodrome which has the crowds roaring. Admire the majestic typical architecture before joining the OM Stadium Tour for a visit where you’ll be all agog.
On match days, the passionate spectators you can see in the stands and those who get together in the mythical bars of Marseille where the vibes are always good. On the Vieux-Port, the Brasserie O’Quinze bears its name well and football and rugby fans gather here). And if you love beautiful sunsets, combine one with a match and head for a table at the Red Lion Pointe Rouge!
Step 2ToulonRugby is the life!
Toulon is a real South of France town and you can visit its little squares and cobbled streets on foot. You won’t hear the waves on the sea or the rattling of boats’ masts on days when the Mistral is blowing. There are little shops to take back a bit of Provence in your suitcase, a table with friends on Place de l’Opéra, a passage through the new Halles Biltoki: no end of super places to visit. As you walk down through the old town to the harbour, you’ll find yourself in front of the Stade Mayol, famous for moving the crowds. Go on a guided tour of the home of the Rugby Club Toulonnais. And don’t leave without having stopped off at the Guinguette Mayol, the headquarters of RCT fans, decorated in the red and black of the mythical club.
Step 3NiceSocca and more?
Welcome to Nice, the most athletic town on the French Riviera! Combine the lifestyle of Nice and the atmosphere of a match for a really successful weekend. Don’t miss a wander around the Vieux-Nice, lunch on the mythical Promenade des Anglais before you visit the Musée National du Sport to get in the mood. On a match evening, head for the Stade Allianz Riviera in your team’s colours with your flag at the ready! Beer, socca and fans make up the perfect cocktail for the sort of athletic moment you love. After or during the match, the Master Home welcomes you to its sports bar where you’re sure to be bowled over by the fans’ excitement!
