Nearly everyone, adults and kids alike, have a natural fondness for cats. They are loving, quiet, and very playful pets that can provide you with years of entertainment.

Not only France's second largest city, Maresille also is the capital of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region and the Bouches-du-Rhône deprtment (yes, France is divided up in many criss-cross ways).

- La Canbiere is a wide street that runs from one end of Marseille to theother.

- Palais Longchamps is a place to go and relax in the gardens of flowers and fountains, and to enjoy an amazingly designed edifice that houses the fine arts collections of Marseille.

- Notre Dame de la Garde is a tourist attraction best known for its bell tower with a statue of the Virgin Mary on top. It offers a beautiful view of the harbor.

- The Saint-Victor Abbey comes to us courtesy of the 11th and 12th centuries. It houses crypts and ancient remnants.

- The Jardin des Vestiges is a facinating site that is nothing like what the name means. "Jardin" is French for "garden". It is in fact what remains of a Greek port that existed 2500 years ago.
