Marseille is situated on the southern border of France. With more than 800,000 inhabitants it is the second largest city of France and its most important commercial port.
Marseille has a Mediterranean climate with very little rain throughout the year. Spring is the best time to visit, although there might be a few chilly days. It often has the hottest summer in the country with an average temperature at 28°C. Though winter is mild; the average temperature is 10°C and the Mistral wind can cause an uncomfortable dip.
From the time it was founded by the Greeks and then passed on to the Romans and finally to the French, it has always been a successful trading port. Its location on the Mediterranean Sea put it on some very important and busy trade routes, giving it the title of ‘the meeting place of the whole world’.

Reviews Marseille

Overall Guide : The Roman Byzantine-styled cathedral of Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde is reached after a sharp climb, but is ideal for a panoramic view of the city. The Old Port is no longer active but still bustles with cafes and restaurants; it is also the... more site for the Belgian Quay, the daily fish market. The Chateau d’If, accessible by boat from the Old Port, was originally a fort and later used as a prison; it still houses some sculptures by the prisoners. The Calanques, fjords in the south of Marseille, with beautiful blue waters and limestone cliffs make for a good day trip from the city. Sormiou, for its beach, and Morgiou, for swimming in the inlets, are the best spots in this area. Though primarily safe, mugging and petty theft are very much a part of Marseille, and so it is necessary to be on one’s guard and not carry too much cash or valuables while exploring the city.

Overall Guide : It's an exciting city in a fantastic location. Do not miss: bouillabaisse - a walk along the CORNICHE DES PRESIDENTS, a stroll in portovecchio, a boat trip to see the badlands, playing golf practically on the sea, a visit to... more the wonderful museum of musical instruments, trying the great soap and drinking coffee freshly roasted in shops around the old port, etc, etc..

Overall Guide : It's the year of European culture and for this reason it's the best destination for 2013. Many works have been carried out and a lot of international events have been scheduled. The city is changing and is very lively and... more animated. You can get around easily on foot or by metro. There are going to be some major exhibitions of the Impressionists.
