Marseille on Film: A New Book

Think of Marseille on film and the image that will flicker before most people's eyes is probably that of Popeye Doyle going cold turkey in The French Connection II which, back in 1975, did for the city's image as a tourist destination pretty much what Kim Jom Un is currently doing for North Korea.

  1. Dear Sheila Johnston,

    I came across your blog and learned that you live in Marseille. My company publishes an iPhone app consisting of self-guided walking tours in Marseille. However, these walking tours were compiled three years ago and some of the information may be out of date. We are looking for people who currently live in Marseille to review the tour content and give us feedback.

    Would you be interested in reviewing our walking tours in Marseille or posting a "Look for reviewers" announcement for us in your blog? We offer reward to people who send us feedback. The reviewers will receive gift codes for our iOS walking tours apps. Each gift code is good for a free walking tour iPhone app download, normally priced at US$4.99. We have walking tour apps covering all major cities in the world.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Best regards,

    Xena Copilova
