Episode 37 Marseille

Marseille, France

Marseille France

Today on Join Us in France we take you to the beautiful port city of Marseille  in France. You may see an “s” at the end of Marseille in English, but not in French. Being French and stubborn, I will not add the “s”!

Marseille is the oldest city in France and we’re here to tell you that it doesn’t deserve the bad reputation going around the internet. In Marseille you get lovely weather, great beaches, interesting museums, lots of ports and chances to get on the water, great food–can you say Bouillabaisse?!–great churches to visit and it’s a very popular cruise ship stop too! If you’ve never visited you need to get down there, you will not regret it!
