Marseille and its region

From the Vieux-Port’s fish market to the narrow streets of the Panier district, Marseille is a city full of surprises. The New York Times has even named Marseille as the must see city in France after Paris.

From ‘Les Calanques’ to Notre Dame de la Garde, from MuCEM to Vallon des Auffes, all age groups and cultures are mixed together - Marseille is certainly a diamond in the rough.
