Marseille: A Pleasant Surprise

Why the surprise? Well, the only time we've really stopped in Marseille was to transfer from one train to another in the busy station. We've heard it described as a "gritty" port city, but once Nautica docked and we walked ashore at the cruise terminal we were taken aback by the lovely surroundings and enjoyed strolling along the spacious promenade before returning to the ship for our last night aboard.

Along with the magnificent scenery came the chance to observe a couple of street "performers" whose act we hadn't seen before - worth another Euro from us...

Marseille on this lovely day made for a great last stop before our return to Barcelona.
