Marseilles is one of the most Instagrammable destinations in the Mediterranean, particularly as it is notoriously a #nofilter city.
Start your photo report with a roundup of pictures of the Old Port, with the St-Jean and Saint-Nicolas forts as striking backdrops. At the Norman Foster Ombrière you can switch off the special effects: the huge metal canopy alone will turn your reflection upside down.
Take a quick snap as you pass by the Hotel Intercontinental and then it's into the multicultural, multicolored and multi-inspirational district of Le Panier. The Place des Treize Cantons was once the site of the hotel where Casanova stayed, so a photo here is essential, with the #hot hashtag of course.
If you love street photography, don't miss views like the bowling green in front of the Majeure Cathedral, while the port area between MuCEM and the Saint-Jean Fort is ideal for architectural photography.
