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.

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 :)

If it only had to do with Muslims then why does Dubai have a low crime rate?
