Marseille is France’s second largest city and offers a unique Mediterranean experience. In 2013, Marseille became the European Capital of Culture. Since then, the city has stylishly developed its culture with news museums, trendy restaurants, bars & hotels. It is a vibrant city with a much more relaxed vibe than its neighbors Nice, Cannes, and St. Tropez
