Marseille Provence is European Capital of Culture 2013. MP2013 (as the operation is dubbed) highlights the city's renewal. Located mostly along the picturesque Old Port, a string of new cultural facilities (museums, concert halls, exhibition venues) reflect Marseille's role as the French gateway to the Mediterranean.
