Marseille will be overflowing with cultural events in 2013; it's the European Capital of Culture. But did you know:

"The Capital of Culture is not just the city of Marseille, it includes an area stretching from Martigues to La Ciotat and including Arles, Aix, Aubagne and other communes in the area."

This from the Marseille - City of Culture site, which you can use to find out what's going on during the year--and the work on new venues continues. It's going to be one gigantic celebration of the arts. Will you go?

We have some resources to help. Our French Travel site has a guide to Marseille and we've just finished our Marseille Provence Airport Guide. Now, start planning--and go get some Culture!
