Marseille
The Essential
Highly recommended
Straddling the East and the West, Europe and Africa, Marseille is a fabulous melting pot of cultures. This cosmopolitan atmosphere is evident throughout the city - around the emblematic Vieux Port, the bustling heart of the city; in the Le Panier district with its narrow streets reminiscent of Italy and Corsica; in the Eastern markets of Noailles or Belsunce resembling a great open-air souk; along La Canebière, where hints of a glorious past remain; or on the Corniche where the villas boast sea views, and minuscule creeks can suddenly be glimpsed at the end of the narrow streets.
