Our stop in Marseille on our MSC Meraviglia Europe cruise
We are in Marseille! Those of you who have been following along with the vlogs probably know that we booked a tour to visit Aix en Provence for this day. Well, we were informed that the excursion was cancelled. We tossed around the idea of taking to Aix the train ourselves, but in the end decided to just hop off the ship, take the MSC shuttle to the old port, and play it by ear. The “vieux port” has been the natural harbor of the city since antiquity and is now a hip place to hang out in Marseille. We can see why it has become so popular. There’s tons to do. One side of the street is lined with vendors selling truly unique goods. You’ll get a good look at some of the things available in the video, and you just might get to see me buy something cool too. The other side of the street is pretty much back to back restaurants. All of which give off a cool I’m-in-France-chill vibe.
