Of all the cities in France, Marseille may be the least understood, or rather, the most misunderstood. The eclectic city in France`s Provence region is the second largest city in France; right after Paris. Located on the Mediterranean Sea, it is the sunniest and driest major city in France. Marseille has undergone an extensive facelift for its reign as European Capital of Culture 2013, and now boasts world-class museums, galleries and performing arts. Today the city is one of the most ethnically diverse cities and since 2013 it has been gaining a reputation as a hip center of artistic innovation with a funky vibe. Marseille is the perfect southern base for any traveler offering fascinating history and culture.
