Tough traffic

French people admit that going through Paris, France by car is hard work – but it’s not top of the list. Marseille is the worst of all. Located at the Mediterranean coast and with 1.8 million inhabitants a big city you should really think about driving in there – I was pretty exhausted when I finally managed to get my car into an underground car park in the city center.

Even cinema has depicted that situation: the “Taxi” series by Luc Besson is situated here and shows the local traffic (with a wink). Marseille has some very interesting museums and sights and I was sad that I hadn’t enough time to see them all. I could at least visit the heart of the city, the wonderful city hall and explore the old harbour – especially magical at sundown.
