Marseille has successfully transformed into a modern urban centre whilst retaining its charming culture and history. The city's past traces back to 600 BC when Greek sailors established a trading port in what is now Marseille's Vieux Port. Historically, the city was a hub for commercial trade because of its important seaport. Nowadays, the harbour still plays a pivotal role as fishing is an important economic activity in addition to business that passes through the docks. On top of this, the city is home to a significant number of companies and is a vital research centre.
