A city like no other, Venice is one of the most beautiful places in the world. With historical significance during both the Middle Ages and the Italian Renaissance, Venice's culture is as deep and complex as the system of islands it is built upon.

It would be impossible to visit Venice without taking a boat trip along one of its 177 canals, lined with ornate palaces. The city of Venice has no streets, and traffic comes instead in the form of gondolas and other boats navigating through the scenic canals. The largest of these is the Grand Canal, which bisects the city.

To experience the heart of Venice, visit St. Mark's square, dominated by the sublime Byzantine architecture of St. Mark's Basilica. Tours of the famous building take place daily. Then, spend the day wandering through Venice's romantic streets and discovering the many gelaterias, souvenir shops, local boutiques, and authentic cafes, the most famous of which is Caffe Florian. This legendary cafe has hosted many celebrities over the centuries, and the original 18th-century decor remains as inviting as ever.

Venice's southern-central location in Europe makes it easily accessible from far and wide. The city's primary airport is Venice Marco Polo Airport. Venice also has two main train stations, and direct trains are available from many European cities, even all the way to Munich. In addition, bus services connect Venice to various international destinations, with the added benefit of an eye-level view of the Northern Italian landscapes.

Marseille is the oldest city in France and the second-largest city after Paris. Although this ancient port town may seem lacking glamour and sophistication, Marseille makes up for this through its cultural depth and rich history.

One of the most popular attractions in Marseille is the Basilique Notre Dame de la Garde. This 19th-century cathedral sits on a hill overlooking the city and can be reached either by regular buses or on foot. If you make the climb, your rewards will be impressive views of Marseille and an awe-inspiring mosaic interior. Thanks to a recent cultural renaissance, Marseille is also home to many new museums and galleries. The Musée d'Histoire de Marseille guides you through the city's rich maritime history and includes exhibitions on the cathedral's construction. The Mucem, or Museum of Civilizations of Europe and the Mediterranean, is an award-winning modern institution devoted to regional history.

After a day of exploring the city, spend a relaxing evening on one of the nearby picturesque Mediterranean beaches, or wander through the Vieux Port for exceptional photo opportunities and authentic local seafood restaurants.

Marseille is easily accessible via plane, train, bus, or sea. Marseille-Provence International Airport is only 30km from the city, with many shuttle services offering direct transfer. TGV services connect Marseille by rail to cities across the country and to Spain, as well. Eurolines and other buses cover routes from Marseille to Paris, Lyon, Toulouse, Genoa, and more.
