The Old Port of Marseille

We visited the Vieux Port of Marseille on Thursday the 14th. We were on our way to the port of Cassis, which with its sleepy feel and million dollar bungalows seems a world away from the bustling, crowded port of Marseille. Marseille is the second largest city in France with more than 800,000 (registered) inhabitants. Probably a lot more than that live in this big city on the sparkling Med.
Huge highrises which give the word Ugly a capital “U” dot the hillsides around this harbor which has been a place populated by people for 26 centuries. We found a quiet spot for the photo of our group, below.
