Day Trip To Marseille4:14 AM
One of the cities in France that gets a bad reputation is Marseille. It's always interesting to hear the mixed reaction from peo...
Fast forward to last week. It's the middle of March and I'm back in Marseille. I've done the majority of the tourists stuff here including going up to the top of the church, seeing the old town, and the port. I decided to take with a grain of salt what others had said about this southern french town and make my own opinion for it. Though I'll admit that I'm not the biggest fan of Marseille (I couldn't see myself living there ), I don't hate it.
Marseille is great for many reasons. It has a bit of something for everyone. If you like the hustle and bustle of the city or relaxing on the beach, this city has a bit of both for you. After a fifteen minute walk away from the train station and it's many steps, I find myself transported into a vacation destination. There's something about sitting at a cafe, staring at the boats in the harbor, and getting a nice tan from the sun that is so simple, yet so unique.
So if you're wondering if you should visit Marseille I would say yes. I'll admit and tell you that it might not be the city for everyone to visit, but it is worth a day trip. Plus, if you're into spotting where famous TV shows and/or movies this is the town for you. You might just find yourself at the restaurant where Colin Firth attempted to propose in Portuguese.
