Marseille, capital of the Aix-Marseille-Provence metropolis since January, 2016, is the oldest city in all of France. Ecole Internationale de Marseille (EIM) benefits greatly from its host: the 2nd largest city in France, both in size and population, a major economic hub and one of Europe's most important shipping ports.

It is thus in this magnificent city that you will develop your French language skills! Also, Ecole Internationale de Marseille will provide you with the unique experience of understanding the social fabrics linking Marseille, Provence, France, and Europe itself.



The Ecole Internationale de Marseille is located on the second floor in a building on the famous Canebière Avenue.




Just around our school lie many museums and important historical sites like the Marine Museum, the Jardin des Vestiges, the Opera, Hotel Noailles, the Reforme Church, and many others. 



The school lies in downtown Marseille, next to the Vieux Port.

Founded in antiquity, the Vieux Port is the oldest port of Marseille. Although it was the economic center until the mid 19th century, it is now a marina for seafarers, locals and tourists who want to experience the cultural core of Marseille.

From the Vieux Port, take the shuttle boat towards the island of Frioul or the mini-train for a relaxed and pleasant tour of the city.

Also available to visit since 2013 is the Ombriere, created by the British architect Norman Foster.


 The Forts St Jean and St Nicolas which protect the entrance to the Vieux Port started construction in the 12th and 17th centuries, respectively. They were both classified as historic monuments in 1960.

Today, Fort Saint Jean houses part of MuCEM (the Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilisation). A footbridge connects the fort to another part of the museum and provides a magnificent view of the sea and neighboring esplanade.



If you continue on after Fort St Jean, you'll wander into the district of La Joliette; named after Julius Caesar who temporarily established a barrack there some two thousand years ago. Recently renovated, this old quarter of Marseille hosts Cathedral Sainte-Marie-Majeure and the new shopping center: Les Terrasses du Port, the largest shopping center in Marseille, even in the Provence Region.
