This beautiful port city is the largest city in the region of Provence. It is the perfect home base to explore Provence and the French Riviera.

Once mainly a naval port, Marseille is now France's second largest city. Foodies will love the local seafood, including regional specialities such as moules frites and boulliabase. For history and culture seekers there are numerous museums and cathedrals (don't miss Notre Dame de la Garde) and the infamous Chateau d'If.
