"The Greco-Roman harbor, 2,000 years ago" Top 5 Page for this destination Marseille Favorite Tip by JLBG

Marseille General: 80 reviews and 100 photos


Favorite thing: This small scale model, on display in the Musée d'Histoire de Marseille, represents the harbor of Marseille as it was 2,000 years ago. It has been built following what remains today and that was unearthed after 1967, when diggings were performed behind the "Bourse" in order to build a subterranean parking.
