Marseille is the second largest city in France and the capital of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur région. The city is also France's largest commercial port and was founded in 600 BC by Greeks as the first Greek port in Western Europe.
Marseille is a city that is proud of its differences from the rest of France. At the outset of the French Revolution a group of Marseillais embarked from the south of France to support the conflict and dismantling of the Bastille. The French national anthem "La Marseillaise" is so named because it was first known as sung on the streets as a rallying call of the French Revolution by troops from Marseille.
Marseille is a site of regional culture and entertainment served by its important opera house, its history and maritime museums, its five galleries and vast amount of cinemas, clubs, bars and restaurants.
The Old Port of Marseilles, also known as the Vieux Port, is the main marina of the city. It is guarded by two massive forts (Fort St Nicholas and Fort Saint Jean) and is the main place for eating in the city.
