The historic Fort Saint-Jean
Football-loving travellers wishing to see England in Euro 2016 can take advantage of extra Ryanair flights this summer.
The budget airline has this week released news of additional journeys to the French football tournament in June.
It said that extra return specials for the England v Russia game (June 11) in Marseille will be running from London Stansted.
And it revealed it has added more return flights for England's all-Home Nations clash with Wales in Lens on June 16. These will be flying to nearby Brussels Charleroi out of Bristol.
Robin Kiely, spokesman for Ryanair, says the offer is in response to huge demand.
He anticipates that all the tickets will be sold for the flights as the country gets behind Wayne Rooney, Joe Hart, Harry Kane and the rest of the squad.
One team you can rely on
Fans following Roy Hodgson's men cannot predict the outcome of their matches.
But they can guarantee that they won't find themselves out of pocket should the worst happen off the pitch if they take out trusted travel insurance.
Finding the right insurance can cover them against unexpected surprises, including lost luggage and delayed flights.
Travellers do not have to be football fans to appreciate Marseille's charms.
Away from the soccer stadium, the southern French port city is awash with all-year-round tourist favourites.
It revolves around the old Vieux Port. Here fishmongers sell daily catches alongside the boat-dotted quayside and good fish dining is guaranteed.
Other attractions include:
- The historic Fort Saint-Jean
- Marseille Observatory
- The French Foreign Legion Museum
- Marseille History Museum
- Marseille Cathedral
It's a similar story with Lens in northern France. The thrice-weekly morning markets offer retail therapy, while other attractions include:
- Louvre-Lens Art Museum
- Lens Railway Station
- 23 different belfries
- Remembrance tours can be taken at nearby historic battlefields
