Synopsis

 

Our illustrated travel guide will take you to Marseille, France.
 
Marseille is the second most populated city of France (and third urban area), the largest Mediterranean port, and the economic center of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region.
 
Marseille has a complex history. It was founded by the Phoceans (from the Greek city of Phocea) in 600 B.C. and is one of the oldest cities in Europe. The town is a far cry from the Cézanne paintings and Provençal clichés of sleepy villages, "pétanque" players and Marcel Pagnol novels. With around one million inhabitants, the Marseille population is a real melting pot of different cultures. 
 
For visitors wanting to experience an authentic city with real people, Marseille is the place. From colourful markets (like Noailles market) that will make you feel like you are in Africa, to the Calanques (a natural area of big cliffs falling into the sea - Calanque means fjord), from the Panier area (the oldest place of the town and historically the place where newcomers migrated) to the Vieux-Port (old harbor) and the Corniche (road by the sea), Marseille has a lot to offer.
 
Finding Internet access when out and about can be problematic so carry your mobile guidebook in the palm of your hand.
