Marseille, European and Mediterranean Capital of Culture in 2013

The city offers its visitors the authenticity of its 26 centuries of history, the friendliness of its inhabitants and the riches of its heritage. Come and explore the city, discover the project Euromediterranee, enjoy its mellow lifestyle, visit its museums and its exceptionally beautiful rocky creeks. Marseille has a charm you can never forget.

When we talk about Marseille (Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur region), we have a whole host of images of the city whose history covers the broad span between Antiquity and the 21st Century. Marseille has always surprised its visitor and brought a sense of attachment to each and everyone who spent time discovering the city.

The sky, the light, the climate and the Mediterranean coastline, which together form a sort of chorus, construct a landscape that is either rugged or harmonious, depending on the mood of the Mistral.

Coveted and envied for its geographical position, this Southern city, occasionally ill-favoured by rumour, has worked hard to become a metropolitan centre.

Marseille looks to the future, but also cultivates its traditions. It retains its balance by combining present and future without renouncing the heritage of the past.

Do you want to see, smell and listen to this lively city with its new destiny?

Enthusiasm is expressed and gives wings to travellers who are sensitive to the attractions laid out by a still modest Marseille.
