Marseille is a coastal city in the South-East France, in the Mediterranian sea. It has a 240,62 Km² area, with a population of about 1.5 million.Marseille is the oldest town in France and the capital of Provence.
A vibrant port since the times of the Phoenicians, the city has a long and complicated past featuring trading, war, migration and most recently, tourism. A city that has always been multicultural, Marseille has typified the best and worst of cosmopolitanism.

Louis XIV built two forts on either side of the harbor.Marseille strongly supported the Revolution. Soldiers sang a song on the march to Paris that later became known as "La Marseillaise".Today, it's France's national anthem.
Marseille was founded under the name of Massalia by the Greek, as a comercial colony. It has two harbours, the new and the old, which have the link between North Africa and France. The old harbour is an important turistic appeal, but the new harbour has centred in the merchant transport through tha Mediterraneum. Fishing is following an important deposit source to the city.
If you come to my city you cannot miss the tiny island of If, best known as the penal setting for Alexandre Dumas' The Count of Monte Cristo.The sixteenth-century castle and its cells are well preserved, and the views back towards Marseille are fantastic. Boats for If leave regularly from the quai des Belges on the Vieux Port.
Explore the narrow streets of the Quartier du Panier, the oldest part of the city, where the Greeks built their temples.
Marseille cooking is famous, the fresh fish captures of the day, are a very important appeal in restaurants and pubs.

Recently, the city has undergone an important improvement. Althought it has passed his 70’s crisis, Marseille still is a big economy.The city was awarded the prize of the most dinamic city of France.
Marseille today is a trendy city, with an exciting cultural life in a beautiful natural setting between hills, the "Calanques" (rocky inlets) and the Mediterranean Sea.
