Marseille is the undiscovered jewel in the crown of France’s Mediterranean coastline. Rocky Provençal hills look down onto the ancient port and the thousands of boats docked in its clear blue waters. Painters and other artists have all been seduced by the sunny climate and the hustle-and-bustle of the town. France’s second city has all you could ask for—beautiful beaches, ancient buildings, thriving arts, and a diverse and dynamic nightlife. Welcome to a place fiercely proud of its unique cultural heritage—Planète Mars.
