France - Marseille
34 times Marseille has won the honor as either a starting or finishing city for a stage in the world’s largest cycling race, Tour de France. Justified both because Marseille is France’s second largest city and the capital of the Cote d’Azur region Provence, but also because this old port city is one of the oldest, most diverse and cosmopolitan in Europe. The port is the country’s most important and has connections to Italy, Spain and Africa and is often referred to as “Port d’Afrique”.
Worth seeing – From the old port of Vieux Port you can take a tourist train right up to the grand, majestic church of Notre Dame de la Garde. From here there is an impressive view over the city. In ancient times, Marseilles fishermen used to bless their church both in the church and several are still hanging out as decorating in the church.
For those interested in culture and history, Marseille offers many exciting museums, such as the Musée d’Archéologie Méditerranéenne, which served as home for beggars in the 1600s, and now houses archaeological discoveries from the Greeks, Romans and Egyptians.
The trendy area of Marseille is located around Le Cours Julien and Place Jean Jaurès, where there is ample opportunity for shopping and café and restaurant visits.
Climate – Marseille has a Mediterranean climate with warm, dry summers and mild, rainy winters.
