Travellers seeking a French city bursting with a fusion of history and pulsating urban sprawl would be hard pressed to beat the cultured municipal port of Marseille.
Founded on a significant maritime heritage, visitors can observe the seafaring past with a trip to Vieux Port front, where fresh fish can be bought and enjoyed as a nourishing testament to the past. The city has attracted a range of inhabitants from all walks of life, lending to a diverse selection of world cuisines and a variety of cultural celebrations in ensuring this bustling city is a far cry from the sleepy dwelling painted in Cezanne’s artistic depictions. If downtime is required however, an inviting coastal area incorporates cycling tracks and sandy beaches as an escape from metropolitan reality.
