For many, the city’s name is associated with the French national anthem - "Marseillaise". The major axis and transportation artery of the city - the street of La Kanber - is a wide boulevard, which stretches eastward from the Old Port. To the south, there is the pedestrian area of Cours Julien - a shadowy realm of palm trees, pools and fountains, surrounded by theaters, cafes and restaurants. To the north of the boulevard, near the new ferry terminal, lies the area of La Zholett, next to which there are the City Hall building (XVII century), Museum of Roman amphorae from trade warehouses for wine, grain and oil, as well as the History Museum of Marseilles with a well preserved skeleton of a merchant ship III century.
Special attention in Marseille should be paid to the Archaeological Museum, Fashion Museum, Museum of Santon, Museum of Fine Arts and the Museum of Natural History. Very interesting forts are spotted at the entrance to the Old Port - Fort Saint-Nicolas and Saint Giovanni, built by the Knights loonies in the XIII century and rebuilt in the XV-XVII centuries. In general, the Old Port offers an extraordinary view of the city, steeped in the spirit of pirate romance. And how beautiful Marseille is in the moonlight! Marseille is one of the most romantic locations in France which will inspire you with its unique architecture, nice places and ports. You should definitely visit Marseille and fall in love.
