Sweet sunny city situated in southern France.

One of the most attractive city in France and in Europe including a very nice weather, a welcoming people, one of the world's most important harbor, an imposing catholic church on a hill, several beautiful beaches and an important soccer's stadium...
Most inhabitants have mediterranean background : french, italian, corsican, spanish, north african... A lot of mixed people live there and there is also an important black community.
Downtown Marseille is quite poor but the dangerous neighborhoods are situated on the northside of the town while the rich areas are located nearby the beaches on the southside.

Some french people don't think Marseille is really situated in France because a strange and singing french is spoken over there and there has never been any riot while all the french ghettos often burn.

Marseille is also known for its high crime rate and famous for being the heroin traffic hub from the 30's to the early 70's when local corsican gangsters have formed an alliance with the sicilian mafia and italo-american mobtsers.

Marseille is a beautiful girl who would do anything for her friends and family. Marseille is a girl who has all eyes on her . Marseille is a very good student in class but sometimes has a lot of energy at home. She can always be found smiling even if she is disappointed. If you meet Marseille, keep her around because she is full of energy and happinesses!
Marseille is an amazing friend.

A cosmopolitan city, the largest in France after Paris. Plenty gangs. A lot of poor folk and a fair amount of rich bastards. Big volleyball tournament held each July down on the beach. Good for skating, sunbathing and exploring.

Consists of a thunderous headbutt to the sternum (chest) of an adversary, with no recoil of the neck. When administered, it is more effective if the total weight of both the upper and lower body is simultaneously transferred towards the opponent, thus flooring the receiving party. The move was made famous by Zinedine Zidane of the French national soccer team during the final match of the 2006 World Cup. It gained renown after leveling Italian national team defender Marco Materazzi to the ground of the pitch following a torrent of verbal abuse directed at Zidane with respect to his mother, sister, and heritage. The Marseille handshake is the only logical recourse when one’s honour has been impugned to such an extent that mere verbal retaliation is insufficient, and simple bodily harm induced by fists and/or feet will not do the job.
After Andrew impugned Ron's manhood, Ron greeted him with a Marseille handshake.
