Marseille is a very beautiful city!

People are nice and very kind. I have traveled a lot in other countries and I do say it is a beautiful city with a lot of culture and a big History!
You can be stolen everywhere... in Marseille, in New York, in London, ...everywhere.

Highly doubt about the Crime rate level of marseille when i compare to other city in the world or even in europe.

Never had any problem in 25 years, it's not perfect but it's definitely not dangerous.

people who put such bad survey should be in a shame.

don't listen to the dumb americans its a beautiful place if you know how to take care of yourself and don't have to complain when people don't know English even though its not the language of the place. It is however fairly dirty and uncivilized which in a way is part of the charm.

I've grown in this city during my first 20 years of life, I'm 23 now and I'm freaking glad I have left this shithole. Don't get traped by the nice postcards picture and all, this city is dirty, impolite, expensive and hasn't evolved in term of culture and civilized behaviors in 20 years. If you're an erasmus student, a tourist or even a person who wish to settle here : don't go, I beg you to chose another location. You probably come from a civilized place and you're clearly not mentally ready for this.

-clip your expansive camera safe on you or try to not show much
-if you go to Atm;try to go inside the bank,better than outdoor atm
-Not walk alone after 10hpm

(Because Dubai is only 10% Arab and 80-85% expats, mostly Indian)

My mother's purse was stolen. Our passports were in it. I do not recommend traveling here at all. Very bad experience, and even harder when almost no one understands english.

Do yourself a favor and don't stop by here. There's not much to see anyways.

You're better off in Avignon, Paris, or even Nice. My family and I were traveling through those places with no problems.

tl;dr mom's purse got stolen in broad daylight

Just visited Marseille last month as a tourist with my wife. We had a good time there, went out at night to city center and we are still alive. So it is not that bad there :)
