Jean-Claude Gaudin
mayor of Marseille

Welcome to marseilleMarseilles. A crossroad since ancient times of civilizations and exchange, both commercial and cultural, Marseille possesses a natural land and maritime heritage, unique in its quality and density. These assets, linked with the image of a city experimenting a complete metamorphosis, have given a fantastic boost to Marseille’ stourism. The figures speak for themselves: 4 millions of tourists in 2009 ! All water sports are represented here, from prestigious sailing regattas to top level kayakists as well as all board-sports. Looking forward to 2013, the year when Marseilles and Provence will be European Capital of Culture, with the City’s twenty museums, covering all the historical periods, from antiquity to contemporary art … From a discovery of the majestic calanques to the Frioul archipelago, Marseille’s natural harbor offers one of the most beautiful sites in the world … With over 300 days of sunshine per year, in Marseilles the summer starts earlier than elsewhere, an invitation to a long stay!
