Ideally located on the shores of the Mediterranean, the port of Marseille Fos, formerly called "Port Autonome of Marseille" is the natural gateway to Europe. Its history dates back to 600 BC, when the Greek sailors from Asia Minor founded the port of Massilia at the present Old Port. Today, in an area as large as the city of Paris, the port has infrastructures that meet the international standards required for passenger, cruise and ferry activities. More than 2 million passengers pass through the port of Marseille Fos every year. In less than ten years, it has become France's leading cruise port. From the port of Marseille Fos, there are ferry connections to Corsica, Sardinia, Algeria and Tunisia. The heart of the city is within walking distance from the ferry terminal. The Phocaean city is the second largest city in France after Paris and has a long and rich history. Do not miss the Cathedral de la Major, one of the oldest basilicas in France, as well as the historic district of "Panier". Three new museums are to be discovered: the National Museum of Civilizations of Europe and the Mediterranean (MUCEM), the Mediterranean Villa and the old Sanitary Instructions with the museum Regards de Provence.
