The second largest city in France, Marseille is a port city that has been the crossroads of immigration and trade from when the city was founded by the Greeks (circa 600 BC). Once referred to as the black sheep of the Provencal coastline, it is fast changing its image from one of urban decay and frightening crime rate to a dynamic, edgy and beautiful city that has to be seen in all its glory. For those globe trotting digital professionals with their laptops in tow that have a hankering for freshly baked baguettes, buttery croissants and decadent éclairs, the city is perfect to gain weight. Wine is cheap, rentals can be found at a decent price and there are plenty of opportunities to mingle with likeminded souls.
Coworking spaces are springing up and the city is becoming a focal point for entrepreneurs to gather in. Coworking office spaces are appearing for local professionals or for those that would like to startup business.
At the heart of the city is the old port area that is usually awash in tourists, fishermen selling their catch of the morning, colorful boats and luxury yachts moored with their masts gently waving in the breeze. You will not lack for choice when it comes to somewhere to grab a snack from the delectable offerings of the bakeries to the side walk cafes and restaurants from which you can watch the passing parade of humanity.
The history buff will be smiling when gawking at the many old buildings or meandering around its swanky new museums, the shopaholic will love its decadent stylish boutiques and if you are into hiking there is the Calanques National Park to explore.
The city had a makeover when it was named European Capital of Culture in 2013 and put on a sparkling new sense of optimism. Use the interactive map above to search coworking spaces in Marseille.
