France's second-largest city, the Mediterranean coastal metropolis of Marseille, enjoyed a great honor in 2013 - this spicy port city and atmospheric capital of the Provence, Alpes, Cote d'Azur region hosted the famed continental LGBT celebration, EuroPride 2013. In 2016, Marseille Gay Pride takes place on Saturday, July 16.
Marseille is quite the gay destination during Pride, with bars, restaurants, hotels, and shops in the area especially abuzz with GLBT visitors.
Check online resources about the Marseille gay scene, such as the Nighttours.com Marseille Gay Guide, and the Gay and Lesbian Marseille online guide at Marseille-Provence.info. Also take a look at the excellent travel site produced by the city's official tourism organization, the Marseille Office of Tourism.
