Marseille is radiant, bathed in sunshine and joie de vivre. This millennial city, lying on a beautiful seafront, clings to hills that offer very beautiful views. Rocky islands archipelago off-shore, tiny secret coves and hidden harbor in the heart of the city, narrow alleys, and village atmosphere. A cross between European and North african cultures, Eastern and Western, Marseille is the Mediterranean. Climb it, let the sound of the sea pace your run, plunge into its History and its stories. Come, let’s take you around…
