WELCOME TO Marseille

France's city of Marseille lies in the southeast, in Bouches-du-Rhône's province, and in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region. French port city Marseille exemplifies Mediterranean culture, the oldest and most prominent in the country. With the most significant commercial port in the Mediterranean, this is the second largest city in France. Marseille is a hotspot of cultural exchange, blending European, Arabic, and African influences. It offers a hectic and fun environment, a constant crowd of people, and a fusion of different cultures that have settled there throughout history. 

Rap music is considered the capital of French rap in the city, primarily populated by Africans and Moors. Even though the city is often considered a North African one, it is essential to realize that it is also a French one, which gives its name to the French national anthem La Marseillaise. 

 Marseille is an excellent European city vacation destination from history and arts to hiking and sunbathing at beaches. Another plus is its connectivity via train; for example, it's only a 6-hour journey from Rotterdam, Netherlands!
