Algiers is the capital city of Algeria and is situated on the Mediterranean coast. Found in the north-central area of the country, Algeria’s largest city sits on the west side of a Mediterranean bay. The North African country has a variety of beautiful landscapes, from stunning beaches with picturesque coastal towns, to the spectacular Sahara Desert, which makes up 85% of the country.
The French-African city boasts a large number of museums thanks to the rich history and diverse culture of the area and also has the nickname of ‘Alger la Blanch’ (Algiers the White) due to the stunning setting of gleaming white buildings rising from the sea. The local architecture is a standout feature with the Kasbah quarter containing a mix of squares, mosques and cathedrals from the Islamic and Roman Catholic influences which have gripped the city over different periods.
The Port of Algiers stretches ten miles across the Bay of Algiers and is arguably the most important seaport in North Africa. The port area itself has a number of attractions to keep you occupied while you wait for the ferry. There's a fascinating 17th Century Kasbah by the terminal, which was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1992.
The terminal is easily accessible from transport links with Algiers Train Station just a short walk away and the N11, Rue d’Angkor linking the port to major road networks. The port runs ferries to Marseille in the south of France and Alicante in Spain, with a handful of long distance services a week.
The French city of Marseille lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast in the south of France and is France's second largest city, known the world over for its amazing beaches and large port. Visitors to the city will find much to see and do including some charming districts filled with busy bazaars and street markets. This is particularly the case in the area around the port. Popular attractions in the city include the Basilique Notre Dame de La Garde which can be found on the south side of the Vieux Port. Also of interest in Marseille is the Chateau d'If and the Centre de la Vieille Charite which is a large exhibition centre that dates back to the 17th century and can be found in the Panier district of the city. For lovely views of the sea you should head to the beautiful La Cathedrale de la Nouvelle Major and the grand Palais du Pharo which is on the waterfront and was once the home of Napoleon III and now hosts many exhibitions.
