Where to park in MARSEILLE?

Parking in Marseille can sometimes be a challenge, especially in the city center. However, with a little planning and information, you can find parking solutions to suit your needs during the Rugby World Cup. Here’s a guide to help you navigate the Cité Phocéenne’s parking system.

Parking areas

Marseille is divided into different parking zones: green zone, orange zone and red zone, each with specific rates and restrictions. The city center, including the Old Port, is mainly in the red zone, where parking is most expensive and limited to 2 hours. Green zones, on the outskirts, have lower rates and allow longer parking.

Public parking lots

There are many public parking lots in Marseille, especially near the main tourist attractions and the Stade Vélodrome, which hosts many Rugby World Cup matches. Prices vary according to the length of your stay.

Park-and-ride lot

To avoid the stress of parking in the city center, consider using the park-and-ride facilities (P+R) located on the outskirts of the city. They’re usually free or very affordable, and you can take public transport into the city center.

Parking for people with reduced mobility

Parking spaces are reserved for people with reduced mobility, and are generally free on presentation of a European parking card.

Mobile applications

Several mobile applications can help you find available parking spaces in real time, such as PayByPhone and Whoosh. These applications also allow you to pay for parking remotely.

Despite the challenge of parking in Marseille, there are plenty of options available to help you enjoy the Rugby World Cup with peace of mind. In our next article, we’ll be talking about charging stations for electric vehicles in Marseille.
