Marseille south of France

When you visit Marseille,  you’ll discover a true city of the South of France, with its Greek and Roman origins and great architectural achievements such as Notre Dame de la Garde, built in 1854, which has since watched over the city.

You will enjoy strolling around the old port where the history of Marseille has been played out for 26 centuries. Renovated in 2013, it has retained all its charm and remains the starting point for many excursions to the creeks of Marseille. Thanks to the many shipping companies, you will be able to visit these charming little coves where the waters of the Mediterranean are similar in transparency to those of the Indian Ocean. Gourmets will not be able to escape the tasting of the famous bouillabaisse, provencal fish soup, deliciously spicy.

The Panier, the oldest district of the Phocean city with its narrow streets and its craftsmen will seduce you because it is there that beats the heart of the city. Nearby, the new MUCEM (Museum of Civilizations of Europe and the Mediterranean) will unveil the many civilizations that have followed one another in the course of history.
