Marseille

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 Eglise Saint-Francois de Sales (in Bandol). And it doesn't end there: take in the spiritual surroundings of Basilique Notre-Dame de la Garde, get engrossed in the history at Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilisations, contemplate the long history of Paroisse Cath├ędrale Saint Sauveur Aix-en-Provence, and take in the dramatic natural features at Calanques.
