What else can we say about marvelous marseilles? 

One of the most renowned destinations in all of Europe, this oldest of the great French cities has progressed with the times, modernizing constantly, yet at the same time beautifully picturesque. 

If it looks familiar that might be because it has played a role in many films, French and international. In fact just off the coast looms the foreboding Chateau d’If, where the fictional Count of Monte Cristo was imprisoned. Or perhaps you recognize scenes from paintings; the small port of l’Estaque was once a favorite haunt of artists such as Renoir, Cezanne, and Braque. In addition to its legendary history, today Marseilles is well known in France for its hip-hop music. Who knew?
