Marseille is the second largest city in France (after Paris). Located on the Mediterranean Sea, it is France's largest commercial port and the largest in the Mediterranean. It was founded in 600 B.C.E. by Greeks from Phocaea as a trading port under the name Massalia. Facing an opposing alliance of the Etruscans, Carthage and the Celts, the Greek colony allied itself with the expanding Roman Republic for protection. Under this arrangement the city maintained it’s independence until the rise of Julius Caesar.
Marseille is divided into sixteen arrondissements which spiral out from the focal point of the city, the Vieux Port. Due north lies the old town, Le Panier, site of the original Greek settlement. The wide boulevard leading from the head of the Vieux Port, La Canebière is the central east-west axis of the town. The Centre Bourse and the little streets of quartier Belsunce border it to the north, while the main shopping streets lie to the south.
Ajaccio is located on the west coast of the island of Corsica, 210 nautical miles southeast of Marseille.
It occupies a sheltered position at the foot of wooded hills on the northern shore of the Gulf of Ajaccio.
The present town of Ajaccio lies about two miles to the south of its original site, from which it was transferred by the Genoese in 1492. Occupied from 1553 to 1559 by the French, it again fell to the Genoese after the Treaty of Cateau-Cambrésis in the later year. The town finally passed to the French in 1768.
Ajaccio is a city, full of history (it is the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte 1769–1821 - Emperor of France), culture and shops, it is charming and relaxed, but can also become lively, vibrant, sporty and fun, and when you move away from the town a little, you will find it is easy to appreciate the richness and variety in the changes of scenery, which are only a stone’s throw away.
