Marseille is a beautiful city in the French Riviera. Almost 1.5 million people call this amazing city their home, and it's not much wonder when you see the fantastic views and experience the great Mediterranean weather. Marseille has been the centre of human activity for many thousands of years. The city itself is the oldest in France, founded in 600 B.C., by the Greeks. Up through the time of the Roman Empire, the city re-enforced its role as a high profile trading centre and port. By the Middle Ages, the city, despite having a bumpy ride, retained its status as an important port for European trade. In the 18th century the city took on an important role in the naval and military defence of France. Today it is a city that is still quite important as a key port city for France and western Europe.
