Vieux Port
Marseille began its life as a trading port founded by the ancient Greeks, and the city’s heart remains at the waterfront. Here, you can witness the city's vibrant Mediterranean soul: Restaurants, cafés and souvenir shops bustle, pavilions host summer events and a daily fish market sells red mullet, sea bream and grouper. Sir Norman Foster’s L'Ombrière, a mirrored canopy on slender pillars, was built as part of a 2013 refurbishment of the quayside coinciding with the city’s stint as the European Capital of Culture.
