Marseille Guide

The French city and port of Marseille lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast in the south of France. It is France's second largest city and France's largest commercial port. Stretching to the east from the Old Port to the Reformes Quarter is the city's main thoroughfare. At the entrance to the Old Port are two large forts, Fort Saint Nicolas on the south and Fort Saint Jean on the north. The Frioul Archipelago is located in the Bay of Marseille and is made up of four islands. Located on one of the islands is the Chateau d'If which was made famous by the novel by Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo. The city's centre has a number of pedestrianised streets, most notably the Rue St Ferreol, Cours Julien near the Music Conservatory, the Cours Honore-d'Estienne-d'Orves which is off the Old Port, and the area around the Hotel de Ville.

Four ferry companies run routes out of Marseille and offer scheduled services to Corsica, Sardinia, Algeria and Tunisia. There are four separate terminals and are all in the "gares maritimes sud" (southern terminals) district. National Terminals One and Two serve passengers to and from Corsica and Sardinia, while International Terminals Three and Four serve passengers to and from Algeria and Tunisia.


Porto Vecchio Guide

The town of Porto Veccio is located on the island of Corsica and lies around 65 km to the east of Sartene and 25 km from Bonifacio. The town was built on the site of former salt marshes and is the reason why the region was not developed sooner because the marshes were infested with mosquitoes and malaria until to 20th century. However, during the 20th century the marshes were drained which enabled the town to develop into the resort that is visible today. Despite this relatively recent development, there was a citadel located on a hill that dates back to the 16th century, when the Genoese ruled Corsica, and today forms one part of the current town, with the other part being the town's marina. The picturesque marina has many cafes and restaurants to enjoy and is a great place to stroll through and spend a summer's evening relaxing with friends and family. Located within the citadel are the original defences and ramparts, around the Place de la Republique, and a number of charming old buildings that line narrow streets and squares.
