The largest trade port of the Mediterranean Sea, the second largest city in France, administrative center of the department of Bouches-du-Rhone region of Provence - Marseilles represents the «main gate» to the south of France. The city is filled with bright contrast that combines architectural, ethnic, and gastronomic diversity.

The city was founded in 600 BC by the Greeks from Phocaea and then it was called Massalia. Due to its preferable location, Massalia became the first popular Greek port in Europe and began to develop rapidly, providing other states with food and manufactured items. Nowadays, the city has 15 districts, which are laid out similarly to those of Paris: a spiral from the center of Marseille. The population consists not only of the French, but also residents from many continents, thus the presence of many immigrants has brought its multinational originality and led to an increase in the number of local residents, as a result, the city has become the most populated commune in France after Paris.
