Trip Report Marseille - capital of culture for 2013

Jump to last reply

I have often seen people saying that one should avoid Marseille when going to the south of France. I disagree completely, because the 2nd city of France is also one of the most interesting, and I think it shouldn't be missed. This year it is one of the designated European capitals of culture, so it has put a lot of effort into some renovations and also the creation of a completely new and fascinating museum, the MuCEM (Musée des Cultures de l'Europe et de la Méditerranée), which can be seen for its architecture alone if you have little interest in museums.

I just spent a few days in Marseille and made this report about it: http://tinyurl.com/mrscapital
