Watch Mediterranean Tales online: Episode 2 Marseilles

In the second show of the series, Irma meets Daniel Vitaglione, author of A Literary Guide to Provence, who reflects on the literature of Marseilles and the south of France. Irma samples Marseilles' most famous fish dish bouillabaisse, and enjoys dessert with the owners of the city's most exotic chocolatire. In the footsteps of Mark Twain, she goes to the Chateau d'If to discover where Alexandre Dumas set his classic novel The Count of Monte Cristo. Sociologist, editor of the journal Mediterranee and writer Kenneth Brown dissects the huge mix of people in the city, and Irma finds out why Marseilles is crazy about football, at the home team's club, and famous for fish, with stallholders at the fishing market.
