Welcome to LodgingGuide's hospitality industry listings for the Marseille area.
Originally a community of Greek sailors, called Massalia, which flourished 600 years BC, at the time of Pythagoras and the founding of the Roman Republic, the antiquity of this sprawling sea port and its history of piracy, smuggling, political intrigue and multi-cultural trade competes with the incursion of contemporary French culture, creating a magical environment unique in all of France, yet treasured and immortalized by the French in their national anthem, “La Marseillaise.” Though second to Paris in population density, the greater Marseille area occupies twice the land mass of the nation’s capital. Marseille, the commercial capital of the area known as the Cote d’Azur, looks and feels more like a separate Mediterranean state than a major French city, particularly around the Vieux Port. The cliffs of the French Alps frame many interesting beaches and afford the hiker some of the most breathtaking scenery in France. The climate of Provence and the Riviera is ideal for grape vineyards, and produces the rich and robust red wines as well as aromatic and well-balanced whites known as Provencal, perfectly suited to Bouillabaisse and other strongly flavored provincial French and North African-influenced dishes of the region.
