Nowhere is the light more beautiful than in Marseille. The evening reds and the shining sun are enchanting.
Far from mass tourism and French clichés lies the sunny port city of Marseille, a beautiful place with a rich history and bright blue skies. The city, founded by the Greeks, is the oldest in France. So you can enjoy strolling through the historic streets of the old quarters here. But Marseille is also a city with a raw edge, a rebellious city set against the chic capital Paris. The arty Cours Julien district with its many street art is a fine example. Your trip to Marseille comes to its climax when visiting one of Europe's most beautiful national parks, Les Calanques.
