We parked close to the Old Port (Vieux Port) and took a hop-on/hop-off bus tour with 13 stops. The complete tour took 1,30h, but we didn´t get off at any of the stops, as being a week day, the bus would take 2 hours to come round the same spot, had we chosen to get off.

Pretty sad that this happens in this day and age in a modern European city. I do hope the city gets cleaned up, as in 2013 Marseille will be one of the European Culture capitals.
Right now, there is new construction and renovations to cultural buildings and roads all over the town in preparation for the event.
The next post will be about another village in Provence among the 200 prettiest, and not only pretty but quite unusual too.
Hope you have been enjoying my travel updates!
