Anyone going? 

Anyone have any tips on Marseille? Pubs, eating, areas of interest, can you do a tour of the ground?

Know a couple of guys who have done Marseille on the stadium hopping circuit. 

Yes there is stadium tours you can do.

They have all said the same thing about Marseille that it has that Barcelona vibe about it (somewhat pleasing on the eye, but a dark underbelly to it which has you looking over your shoulder)

From my experience of Marseille it's hee haw like Barcelona. 

Marseille is, in the main, a bit of a hole. Not somewhere i'd go for another trip. The stadium is cracking though :ok:

Aix en Provence is only half an hour away on the train and is a much nicer option than Marseille.

Barcelona is an amazing city. Nothing like Marseille IMO.

Was in Marseille last June for the Euros, Poland v Ukraine. Decent city, but never comparable to Barcelona in any way. 

We had a better two days in Cassis on the coast, what a cracking town that was! 👍🏼

Went on a half day trip from Aix en Provence to Cassis in April. Didn`t see much of village as was on boat trip to see rocks (can`t remember name) which wasn`t a great idea as boat was small, sea was choppy and we`d stopped for winetasting on way but it looked good. Lots of better alternatives to Marseilles - Aix en P, Avignon,..... Nimes was nice but a bit further away.

Calanques. Aye we did that too. A decent wee one-hour boat trip.
