Marseille is the second largest city in France and is considered one of the oldest in Europe. The city has a rich maritime heritage that still thrives today from its Vieux Port (Old Port) and Grand Port Maritime has become the leading commercial port of the Mediterranean. Marseilles also boasts fantastic shopping, museums and restaurants so finding entertainment won't be difficult. Marseilles stretches far along the coast and inland so hiring a car to traverse this city is recommended. Hertz have six locations in Marseille including the Airport so renting one should not be a problem.
