France’s second largest city, Marseille, throbs with vitality from where it sits on the Mediterranean Sea. Its scenic natural harbor has made it an important trade center for centuries. The city was bombed by Germany and Italy as well as the Allies during World War II, but it survived and today blends the old and the new in exciting ways. Marseille is a city just made for wandering around, from its historic old town to its blended architectural styles. While any time is a good time to visit this historic city, Marseille attractions really shines on sunny days.
