The French city and port of Marseille lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast in the south of France. It is France's second largest city and France's largest commercial port. Stretching to the east from the Old Port to the Reformes Quarter is the city's main thoroughfare. At the entrance to the Old Port are two large forts, Fort Saint Nicolas on the south and Fort Saint Jean on the north. The Frioul Archipelago is located in the Bay of Marseille and is made up of four islands. Located on one of the islands is the Chateau d'If which was made famous by the novel by Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo. The city's centre has a number of pedestrianised streets, most notably the Rue St Ferreol, Cours Julien near the Music Conservatory, the Cours Honore-d'Estienne-d'Orves which is off the Old Port, and the area around the Hotel de Ville.
Four ferry companies run routes out of Marseille and offer scheduled services to Corsica, Sardinia, Algeria and Tunisia. There are four separate terminals and are all in the "gares maritimes sud" (southern terminals) district. National Terminals One and Two serve passengers to and from Corsica and Sardinia, while International Terminals Three and Four serve passengers to and from Algeria and Tunisia.
In the North-central part of Algeria is its capital and largest city, Algiers. Located on the West side of a bay of the Mediterranean Sea, Algiers serves as an important port with 2 artificial harbours.
The city consists of the modern part built on ground level by the seashore, and the old ancient city which climbs the steep hill behind the modern town.
Few travellers visit Algeria these days due to its recent violent history, but its capital city Algiers, also known as North Africa's white lady, has a beauty that belies all violence. The country’s turbulent history has left the city with rich heritage, from its Moorish mosques, Ottoman-style palaces and the Casbah to its Berber fortifications and French colonial boulevards, dazzling any enthusiast of culture, architecture, literature or art.
The seafront is where all Algiers go down to relax and is a great place to meet the delightful locals. Have a walk around the shattered piles of fishermen’s houses below the sea wall where people used to live just above the waves.
