Marseille, France

Gateway to Provence

The 2013 European "Capital of Culture," Marseille is the largest port city on the breezy Mediterranean coast and the second largest city in France.
Venture out of the city with trips to Avignon (Pont d'Avignon & Palais des Papes), Carrieres des Lumieres (in Les Baux de Provence) and Aix-en-Provence (Paul Cezanne’s Studio, Paroisse Cathédrale Saint Sauveur Aix-en-Provence, &more). There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Basilique Notre-Dame de la Garde, make a trip to Randonnees theatrales Marcel Pagnol Cie Dans la cour des Grands, wander the streets of The Panier, and look for gifts at La Chocolaterie Marseillaise.
