yes way marseille is your indispensible English guide to France’s coolest city, a helpful handbook for locals and visitors alike.

I’m a bilingual American writer who has set up shop here after stops in Seattle, LA, and NY. Ever passionate and inquisitive about my adopted home, please join me as I dive into the treasures of this vibrant 2600-year old city. I’m happy to share... 

Marseille is where Provence comes crashing into the sea, a vibrant, salty mix of metropolis & beach, big city swagger & small town charm, and grit & gorgeousness. This multicultural melting pot grooves to hip hop beats and seagull squawks, is soaked in pastis and sunshine, and is as bold as the mistral that blows through town.

Marseille is where you can witness Le Corbusier’s talents up close, sweat in a hammam, cool off in the Mediterranean, and devour a sardine freshly plucked from its waters all in the same day. This is how I spent my first two days here, hence why I’m hooked.
