After the visiting the Rhône-Alps region, we took the train from the mountains to the sea to stay in Marseille. An ancient Phoenician port, Marseille has been around for a long time. We were fortunate enough to stay for five days, but we could understand the enticing lure of the blue Mediterranean which for a long time made this city a gateway from France to the  rest of the world.

Having learnt a lot about Marseille in the classroom, it was great to be able to experience it for ourselves. We had to visit the vieux port and try the Bouillabaisse soup, as encouraged by our teacher. Marseille was a beautiful town, but boy it was hot while we were there! We were glad for the electric fans in many restaurants, and for the excuse to buy a few icecreams…
