Marseille -  Image by Daniele Guido Gessa and Joel TakvyIt’s one of the oldest cities in Europe – and one of the most vibrant on the Mediterranean coast. Welcome to Marseille, south of France, a city with 26 centuries of history, and still transforming.

A mix of cultures indeed, next to the harbour you’ll find African markets, Italian communities (the border is not far), crowds of tourists and students from all over the world, Corsican, Spanish: all of them trying to preserve their traditions but also trying, at the same time, to hone Marseille’s reputation as a truly multicultural tourist destination.

Your visit must start from the Old Port, completely renovated by Norman Foster’s British architectural firm. Here you will find the tiny but splendid Town Hall and the gorgeous Marseille Cathedral, quaint squares and medieval fortresses. The northern part of the natural fjord is where the crowds gather all day long.
