Yes, must come back and follow all the links.
How I want to come and visit here.

Oh my goodness, wow, what a post! Thank you. Marseille has never, I mean never, been on the list - now, it is. In fact, can't wait.
Corey, after a long day at work at my new job . . . I have to laugh . . . I use to read your blog with my morning coffee, now, it's with a big glass of wine. Lol
This info is great . . .xoxo

I had no idea that Marseille was the second largest city. I was there in the 1980s...we took the Train Bleu to the south from Paris, overnight. We ended up in some small town, can't remember the name, and rented a car, drove thru Marseille, then on to St. Tropez.

Thank you for the "journey"...I hope I dream about it tonite. That MAY be the closest I come to being there ...but one never knows :)

Thank you for this post. It is timely as I have not visited Marseille yet but plan to go tomorrow while staying in Aix where my daughter has moved in for her studies. Provence was a place where I used to go as a child and had not returned for a long while, except for a one week vacation in Apt which has made me want to come back... Today, I will visit Cassis.

I am disappointed that we never made it to Marseilles. I especially wanted to visit the old hardware store! One of my favorite things to do in Europe is go to hardware stores. I've found the coolest things there.

omg + didn't know that about Marseilles! xxpeggybraswelldesign.com

I need to erase my one memory of Marseille and, sadly, your house. In time ... zou bisou, bisou.

A lot like Naples, Italy...everyone passes it by because of a bad reputation but it is wonderful!

On another note I thought that the Abbey of St Victor in Marseille was the traditional resting place of the relics of Lazarus? A place to visit in any event:)

We like Chez Michel for bouillabaisse too.

I meant "replace" not "erase". Big difference.

Then we must return. xo

It looks and sounds fascinating. Marseille is one of those names that I often come across in my reading of WWII history.

Back from Marseille and not only the wind has blown my mind away but the entire city! Not at all what we hear about this city... What a day it has been....
