Minato Ku, thanks for the info on the rail transport. I got it now. It's a surprise to me though that public transport in some areas in France is not so good. I always thought that all of France has great and efficient public transport (like in Paris).
Public transports in Paris are far from perfect.

Perhaps not perfect (like in Singapore ) but generally it seems to be good. And certainly better than in Marseille.

It is because most of the suburban devellopment of France is post WW2, so with the car.
Anway the inner city transportation is often good even in Marseille.
The city has two subway and two LRT line.

It is not the suburbs but the inner city, in Marseille many of the poorest part are next to the center or even in the center.
By exemple the area around the train station is the 3rd arrondissement, the municipality with of lowest income by capita of France.

In 2013 Marseille will be European capital of culture. I guess it will be a good chance for the municipal government to give a little facelift to the entire city and spend some Euros on cleaning the streets and fixing some facades.

This is actually terrible.

The gentrification/reconstruction they are doing right now in the city is like an anti-poor bulldozer.

Marseille was a good exeption in France because in almost all of our cities the centers had been gentrified and the more working class populations have been chases to the outskirts. Only in Marseille did business and the upper classes not completely own and control the center.

Now they are buying new buildings and kicking their inhabitants out, often directly.

How nice to see it...
I've been to Marseille this summer and I must say it's a nice city. I stayed in a hotel nearby the building, which is on the picture 40., it's not so far from the Prado Beach. The best way to travel there is to catch a subway or a bus. It's not expensive. My biggest mistake, as I see now, was traveling from city centre to the airport (it is really far away) by taxi. I paid 60 euros! When train is 12 times cheaper. But the luggage...

I visited Marseille 8 years ago and I loved it. Like some others here allready wrote, because it's not gentrificated (yet) I like 'rough' cities and the setting on the Meditarian coast makes it a quite pleasant town.
Cool pics anyway!

Marseilles looks great to me.

What is the typical daytime temperature in winter 10-12 degrees or less?
