Marseilles & the Calanques, 2007

Marseilles started life as a safe haven for Greek sailors before Julius Caesar conquered it for Rome. In 1792, the city roared ‘Viva La Revolution!’ and sent 500 volunteers to defend Paris. Turtle visits the city, as well as Aubagne, the HQ for the French Foreign Legion, and the Calanques.
