The French city and port of Marseille lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast in the south of France. It is France's second largest city and France's largest commercial port. Stretching to the east from the Old Port to the Reformes Quarter is the city's main thoroughfare. At the entrance to the Old Port are two large forts, Fort Saint Nicolas on the south and Fort Saint Jean on the north. The Frioul Archipelago is located in the Bay of Marseille and is made up of four islands. Located on one of the islands is the Chateau d'If which was made famous by the novel by Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo. The city's centre has a number of pedestrianised streets, most notably the Rue St Ferreol, Cours Julien near the Music Conservatory, the Cours Honore-d'Estienne-d'Orves which is off the Old Port, and the area around the Hotel de Ville.
Four ferry companies run routes out of Marseille and offer scheduled services to Corsica, Sardinia, Algeria and Tunisia. There are four separate terminals and are all in the "gares maritimes sud" (southern terminals) district. National Terminals One and Two serve passengers to and from Corsica and Sardinia, while International Terminals Three and Four serve passengers to and from Algeria and Tunisia.
The French town of Propiano is located in the south west of the island of Corsica, at the head of the Valinco Gulf and to the north west of Sartene. The town's centre is a lovely place explore with many traditional houses which seem to have been taken over by cafes, bars and luxury shops. The town is now one of the most popular resorts in Corsica due to the many beaches that are nearby for visitors to enjoy, including the Plage de Lido which are around 1 km from the town.
Many of the town's buildings date back to the early 19th century, when most of the town was built and is also when the port was established. Although the location of the town has been inhabited for centuries, including by the Romans and Greeks, little of early Propriano remains as it was often attacked and mostly destroyed during the 18th century.
From the town's port ferry services operate to Marseille with a journey time of around 12 hours and 30 minutes.
