Marseille in 2013 will be very special since it is a European "Capital of Culture", a title given to two Europeans cities each year. (The other one for this year is Kosice in Slovakia).
Marseille has a history of cultural differences with beginnings around 600 BC. It was first a vibrant Greek trading port and then a Roman port, eventually becoming a fortified town. It has always had an independence fiercely separate from local governments and as a mordern day naval center, it is today a melting pot of cultural diversity.
