Waterfront roads, quaint little boats, the smell of fresh fish just caught from the sea, sushi by the roadside, great music, fantastic nightlife and unparalleled landscaping all come together at the port city of Marseille. The city with charm, a muse for artists like Paul Cezanne is also the second largest in terms of population. There is a rich diversity in terms of culture, architecture and cuisine. People are very friendly and always outdoors in the summer, singing, dancing and enjoying the night away. Here classical meets contemporary in music, theatre, film and dance. Covered arcades in the older parts of the city conspire with the narrow lanes, ancient spires, boutiques, and craft stores giving you the feel of walking straight into the countryside described in novels. France, a country that resonates beauty can have no other city as the forefront of its ideologies than Marseille.

No day at Marseille is complete for the locals than one spent dancing, singing and food and drinks are considered a compliment to spending the night the best way one possibly can. With several new concept bars and clubs, Marseille seems to always want to be a step ahead of its neighbouring cities and competes furiously to provide some very unique experiences. Cabaret Aléatoire for the contemporary scene lovers, Le Rooftop for the dancers, Erre for a drink by the bay and Le Molotov for the punk lovers, it seems Marseille has pretty much every quadrant of party lovers covered. Keep in mind the locals will always help guide you to new clubs but it is better to do one's own research and then venture into town.
