Marseille, that is 2600 years of harbour and history. People on passage. The best of times and the worst of times, yet never would the city cede to despair. Marseille today, that is a noisy metropole, multi cultural, multi ethnic. "No love at first sight" as wrote Jean-Claude Izzo, Marseille needs to be discovered.
There is also the beauty of nature in the surroundings, the "Calanques de Cassis", the islands and the sometimes wild sea blown by the wind "Mistral".
But first of all, Marseille is the home of the Marseillais, a unique mixture of people.
