European Capital of Culture
The city of Marseille, European Capital of Culture in 2013, is an exuberant, colourful city. You don’t so much visit Marseille as you live Marseille.
The city’s history dates back to antiquity. Over the ages, Marseille has hosted all the cultures of the Mediterranean. It has drawn the best from all cultures to forge it’s own identity. Take some time getting lost in the old streets of its tangled quarters, stroll along the Old Port or walk up to the “Bonne Mère” catholic basilica to try to understand this seductive, and equally excessive, city.
