The capital of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region, located on the southeast coast of France, is best discovered on foot. You may get a breathtaking view of the Mediterranean and the city of Marseille from the “Corniche” coast road, which is located to the south of the Vieux-Port.
The Palais Longchamp, constructed in 1870 to celebrate the opening of the Canal de Marseille, is a must-see for any architecture aficionados in the area. The palace is lavish and beautiful, and it has some extravagant and even decadent features like fountains and gardens.
South of France on the Mediterranean, Marseille is the country’s second-largest metropolis. Due to its reputation as France’s sunniest and warmest major city, Marseille attracts tourists throughout the year. The city of Marseille has been inhabited since before 600 BC. It has been around since roughly 1000 BC, thus it naturally features a huge variety of historic buildings like churches, museums, and castles.
Today, the city of Marseille is well-known around the world as the host of a wide variety of major sporting events, including bicycle races, football matches, and more.
The local specialties, bouillabaisse, the city’s most famous dish, and pastis, its famed aniseed liqueur, are best enjoyed on hot summer days while playing pétanque, a game of boules played under the trees in the old town of Marseille. Savon de Marseille, one of the city’s renowned soaps, makes for a great keepsake.
