The sky is so grey & rainy here in Paris at the moment. It almost feels like summer is already over 🙁
So I thought it was the perfect time to go through all the blue sky pictures from our visit to Marseille a couple of weeks ago.
Although actually to see such a blue sky made me feel even more upset as I miss summer even more now ahah! 😉
Anyway we arrived in Marseille on a sunny Saturday,
left our bags at the hotel & headed straight to the Vieux Port for a late lunch.
The Vieux Port is super pretty. People told me it was very touristic & it wasn’t the “real city”, but I really liked it.
There’s a relaxing atmosphere, a beautiful view & plenty of cafés & restaurants to enjoy an al fresco meal!
After some seafood, we wandered around,
admiring the boats,
the big wheel,
& the seagulls,
’til the end of the harbour, where there’s an old fort.
We had the most enormous ice-cream ever – actually almost too enormous!
That we ate in front of the most gorgeous view!
As all the tourists, we snapped a quick photo at the upside-down mirror,
& continued our way to Les Terasses du Port, a new shopping mall, from the top of which you have an amazing view!
There are also several cafés on the top terrace.
But let’s be honest, we came there for the boutiques, as hubby offered me a beach bag for our 2 years anniversary, but he preferred to choose the bag together with me. Such a wise guy! 😉
I picked up a wonderful basket from Amenapih.
& also, while wandering around we saw a beautiful light pink bag from Karl Lagerfeld, perfect for summer in the city… so I eventually had a double anniversary gift! 🙂
We had a long stroll to come back to our hotel, where we enjoyed a pastis – a local liquor – aperitivo, before…
… falling asleep!
Honestly, we were so tired we couldn’t go out anymore, so we went to bed without supper! 😉
So the next morning we were feeling super good & ready to explore more of Marseille! 🙂
Here a little sneak peek to the next post & the wonderful creeks we visited!
