Marseille, Euromediterranean Capital
A magical and magnificent natural site, 2600 years of fascinating history, the delightful charm of picturesque neighbourhoods, an idyllic climate, quick and easy access. This Jewel of the Mediterranean is endowed with exceptional touristic qualities, and its attraction has increased as Marseille-Provence was the European Capital of Culture in 2013.
For the past 15 years, the city of Marseille and its partners in the public and private sectors have been working together to make Marseille the Mediterranean destination of choice for business tourism. More than 660 million Euros have been invested in a wide range of sectors, vaulting Marseille into its well-deserved place among the great European metropolises.
Marseille is only a short flight away from most of Europe’s capitals, including London Heathrow, Berlin, Rome, Moscow, Madrid, Brussels, and others. Starting this spring, it also offers direct flights to New York. Marseille also has a high-speed train station, located in the heart of the city, with access to Paris in just 3 hours, as well as links to Frankfurt, Brussels, Geneva and Barcelona soon. Just a few more reasons for choosing Marseille.
