Marseille may have been notorious with drugs, crime and insecurity but it's not necessary a blacklist city for travelers.
Granet museum is a must-see because it houses hundreds of works by François Granet, Paul Cézanne, Van Gogh, Picasso and other world's famous painters/sculptors.

In my imagination, Cannes must be very fancy and glamorous -- you know, with the world's most prestigious film festival, the red carpets, the Hollywood stars and all that. The truth is that on the absence of celebrities, Cannes is just a peaceful and picturesque beach town. You can leisurely walk along the promenade without being disturbed by thousands of teens act crazily outside the Festival Palace or being stopped for security checks every street corner.
