Marseille is a large port city in the south of France. It’s often seen as a flyover city. Marseille was once notorious for high crime rates. Although things improved a lot recently, the reputation remains. Many travellers skip Marseille in favour of Nice.
That being said, Marseille has a lot going for it. You’ll find a decent gay scene in Marseille centered around several venues, including bars, clubs, saunas and cruise clubs. You can explore Marseille’s port and excellent food scene. Marseille is France’s second-largest city. Rather like Naples, Marseille is a rough and ready city but it has a certain charm. It’s a city with an edge.
