To be very honest, from reading a lot of information on-line about Marseilles, I started to think I had made a big mistake in booking a one week's trip. How wrong I was! I thoroughly enjoyed my time here, especially the Vieux Port area.
Vibrant, interesting, a beautiful harbour with some fine yachts, restaurants galore, plenty of shops and a good daily market - plus lots of sunshine. Who could ask for more?
I found the Vieux Port area very safe at all times of the day; just like other major European cities you have to take the usual common-sense precautions to protect your personal belongings.
This is certainly an area I would re-visit without any hesitation.
