Introducing Marseille


One reason for Marseille's historical value is that it is not only the country’s second-largest city, but also its oldest, having originally been founded by Greeks over 2,600 years ago. Artists such as Cézanne, Picasso, and Matisse are thought to have found much of their inspiration in this fabulous city and its beautiful surroundings. These days Marseille is an important Mediterranean trade center and a popular tourist destination. Its 111 districts, mild climate, and fabulous French gastronomic traditions along with its splendid architecture, sunny beaches, and lively city life make it a tough destination to beat. Visitors can seldom resist its fun and quirky charm.
