Marseille, European City of Culture for the year 2013, is the oldest city in France with a glorious, rich and turbulent history giving it a unique identity. The legend surroundings and the origins of the city, go back to 600 B.C., when it was founded by Greeks from Phocea as a trading port under the name ‘Massalia’.
