The City That Launches A Thousand Ships

Septembre en Mer (September by the Sea) offers a hugely popular and eclectic programme of over 300 marine-themed events in Marseille and the surrounding coastal area. It encompasses everything from seafood feasts and scuba diving lessons to shipyard visits and excursions to the Frioul or Rioux islands in traditional boats. And this year there's something extra special: a Marine Parade on 7 September, when a thousand boats of all shapes and sizes take to the sea, including the beautiful 19th century three-masted cargo ship, the Belem.
