Marseille is located on the south coast of France and the second largest city of the country after Paris. The city is founded in 600BC and is one of the oldest cities in Europe. Marseille has definitely a lot to offer: Vieux Port (the old port), Basilique Notre Dame de la Garde (where the old fishermen used to have their boats blessed in this church), Palais Longchamp, Cathedrale de la Major (with amazing mosaic floors), Parc National des Calanques (with dazzling blue sea and spectacular lime cliffs), La Corniche (a road by the sea with lovely views of the Mediterranean sea) not so far from Vallon des Auffes (a small and colorful old port), Palais du Pharo (which is built by Napoleon III in 1858), Le Cours Julien and La Plaine (a hangout area with a lot of graffitis, cafes, book stores, fountains, and playground).
