Marseille for a backpacker

I like diverse and cosmopolitan cities with character, and I reckon that Marseille would fit the bill quite well.

Would you recommend it for a long weekend?

1. Re: Marseille for a backpacker

That is a fair enough description of Marseille and yes, there is enough to see for a long week-end. L'Office du Tourism has a site in English :


Don't forget to have a bouillabaisse if you like fish, rather in the streets to the left when facing the sea from the Vieux Port. The buildings along the port go back to Louis XIV and there are many small restaurants in the streets right behind.
