It is located in the region of Provence and is the home of Grand Port Maritime (the largest cruise port in France), the International Documentary Film Festival, "Bonne Mere" basilica (Notre Dame) and the largest underground treatment plant in world. Marseilles also is known for its convent forms of travel, as it has the third busiest airport in France and three other public transportation networks.
