The oldest and the second largest city in France, Marseille is a cosmopolitan, exotic and lively city offering a symphony of sounds, flavors and colorful sites. You will be enchanted by its old historic center and picturesque fishing harbor where you can take a boat to explore little creeks, inlets and outlying islands on the Mediterranean Sea. Here you can sample a varied cuisine where the traditional Bouillabaisse cohabits nicely with North African Couscous.
Marseille is located only 3 hour train ride from Paris and is a great starting point for an exploration of Provence and the French Riviera.
