Truthfully, when we were in Marseille, we didn’t love it. I think we were just a little worn out at this time in the trip. But now that I look back on it, it was really great and I totally recommend going! I can’t believe I didn’t appreciate it more when I was there! We stayed here, in the heart of the old town.

Food + Drink in Marseille
Le Cercle Rouge – we actually ate here twice (in the courtyard) we liked it so much
Rowing Club for brunch
Bar des 13 Coins
Fish Soup – we meant to get a Bouillabaisse (traditional Provençal fish stew originating from Marseille) but we somehow never got around to it
Things to do in Marseille
Beaches – We went to Plage Des Catalans, the first beach you’ll come across on leaving the Old Port
Vieux Port (Old Port)
Markets along the port
Îles du Frioul – I’m going to write a separate post about Plage De Saint-Esteve which is just a ferry ride away
Panier (Old Town)
Cours Estienne d’Orves
Marseille’s train station is gorgeous and offers a great view since it is perched on top of a hill. After we left Marseille, we took the train to Nice and this was an amazing ride, we passed through the cote d’azur and it was gorgeous!

Good post. I learn something totally new and
challenging on blogs I stumbleupon every day. It will always be interesting to read articles from other writers and use a little something
from other websites.
