Hi Mel, First of all it´s wrote Marseille. Marseille is a religion more than a city. The people in Marseille (marseillais)live for their football team (OM) and for their city.
The vieux port (the old port) is where most of the activities take place. Have a look at this web page where you will most most of the tourist attractions http://www.cogito.fr/marseill/marsvisi.htm

The traditional dish in Marseille is LA Bouillabaisse which is a fish soup with real piece of fish. You eat it with croutons (little pieces of grilled bread) and rouille (orange sauce).

If you are lucky enough to watch a football game at the stade Velodrome you will remember all your life even if you dont like football as it´s like going to the church for them.

Have a great time.
