Marseille is the European Capital of Culture for 2013. Consequently during this year, the hotels will be overloaded. The Institut de Recherche pour le Développement (IRD) has pre-booked a certain contingent of rooms in two hotels: Ibis and Suite Novotel to facilitate your search. You will be able to book your accommodation on the registration page.

Visit Marseille:

With more than 850,000 inhabitants, Marseille is France's second city, the first French port and the fourth largest in Europe. Located on the southeast coast of France, Marseille is on the Mediterranean coast and is the capital of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region, as well as the capital of the Bouches-du-Rhône department.

In 2013, Marseille and the Slovakian city Kosice will both be Capitals of Culture. Sightseeing in Marseille includes some major attractions such as the Vieux Port, the Palais du Pharo, the basilica Notre Dame de la Garde, the Chateau d'If and Frioul Islands...
