Marseille is the oldest Mediterranean harbor, a city with a rich, centuries–old history. It has existed for more than 2.5 thousand years. The old city port was an important hub of international trade back in the Antiquity era. The powerful forts of Marseille were built by Louis XIV, better known as the “sun King”, and the elegant Baroque palaces became the legacy of the era of the last French emperors.
