A visit to Olympique de Marseille will stimulate all the senses
At the bottom of the steps in front of the Stade Vélodrome, the ultras of the Virage Nord set off flares, and among hundreds of fans, rockets are fired. A few metres away, a boy wheelies between the honking traffic on the busy Boulevard Michelet. Every few minutes, a cobra is set off under the flat opposite, which can be heard all the way downtown. Welcome to the organised chaos that is Marseille.
