Marseille France

Marseille in southern France is one of the oldest ports in Europe, and the Vieux-Port (Old Port) combines an atmosphere of old and new with the centuries-old Fort Saint-Jean and Saint Laurent Church overlooking the luxury yacht-filled marina and fishmongers selling their daily catch.

The crescent-shaped port offers a vibrant ambience with waterfront cafes, and restaurants serving fresh seafood platters. After dark, the city comes alive with the sounds of music in the late-night bars and clubs near the art deco Opera de Marseille. Take time to admire the beautiful architecture, like the Palais Longchamp, home to the natural history museum, and the beautiful murals, mosaic & marble at the Marseille Cathedral.
