Top 5 / Europe

After Marseille was named European City of Culture in 2013, the city saw a resurgence in art, culture and food. Here are some of the best fine dining restaurants in Marseille.

L’Alcyone

This Michelin-starred establishment opened in 2013 and is housed in the famous Hotel-Dieu. It’s a fantastic setting for a restaurant that focuses on Mediterranean cuisine, with a particular taste for local fish. A real treat if you have some cash to splash.

L’Epuisette

Head slightly outside the center of town to eat at this seaside restaurant with amazing views over the Mediterranean. Most guests opt to sample the signature set menu known as “Fanny” to see what the chefs can do.

La Villa Madie

Two Michelin stars show the high regard this minimal chic establishment is held in. Chow down on the innovative cuisine while looking out over the sea and the pine forest that surrounds the restaurant.

La Petit Nice

Head chef Gerald Passedat showcases the best of the Provence region and captures the essence of life in a port city. This three-Michelin-star restaurant is known as one of the best places to try the iconic bouillabaisse fish stew.

Une Table Au Sud

Sitting on one corner of the old port, this place is right in the heart of Marseille. The kitchen has won plenty of awards and the prices aren’t cheap, but it’s worth it for a real splurge meal.

Where to Eat in Mont-Tremblant

No resort is complete without a full list of dining and shopping options. Mont-Tremblant is no exception, and the mountain resort features countless bars, restaurants, quick-service eateries and places to shop.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.

Exploring Australia’s Rainforests

When travelers imagine Australia, most do not picture a lush rainforest with a serene waterfall cutting through the trees. However, that is, in fact, reality. Australia is not just desert or Outback. Although famous for its arid weather and desert oasis, Australia is a diverse country and home to some of the most beautiful rainforests in the world. Similar to other rainforests, Australia's are home to dangerous animals and fauna not friendly toward people, but, on the other hand, many have reported taking peaceful nature walks and feeling more connected to the Eerth from exploring the vast rainforest.
