About Marseille (Provence), France
The most populated city in France after Paris, Marseille has all the sights and sounds of a Mediterranean melting pot, which it has been ever since the Phocaean Greeks invaded around 600 B.C. Its industrial docks rub shoulders with the picturesque old harbor, the Vieux Port, founded by the Greeks 2,600 years ago. Packed with colorful fishing boats and yachts, the Vieux Port is the heart of Marseille.

This is the most inconvenient port. We docked at Terminal A (very far from the city). There's a 1.5km green walkway to the free shuttle stop (to La Joliette - city centre). Walk across the road to the Metro station. We took the free shuttle bus back but it departed only at 4.15pm. So everyone on the bus was late for the 4.30pm all aboard time, making us run for the ship. On hindsight, I would rather take the MSC shuttle (EUR15.90) right in front of the terminal to Marseille town. Rather than walk the 1.5km, then take free shuttle, then metro. Such a waste of time and energy. The 1.5km walk to and fro was just too much. Not recommended for the elderly.
