Why visit Marseille ?
The simple fact of stating the name of Marseille is enough to remind you of the joie de vivre of Pagnol’s old films or the sun that illuminates the “Phocéenne” city. European capital of culture in 2013, Marseille will seduce you with its Old Port, its Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde basilica and its calanques. You may find it difficult to adopt the famous Marseillais accent, but it is here that you will enjoy aïoli, bouillabaisse and tapenade over an aniseed glass. The various districts of Le Panier, the Docks or those found in the Count of Monte Cristo have an interesting heritage. Besides, the Château d’If does exist and can be visited!
