I’ve been meaning to post this photo for a while. This is a view of Marseille from the south of the city. This particular spot is where I took the photo of calanque de Sormiou. You can also see the Notre Dame de la Garde (on the hill), where I took the panoramic photo of Marseille.
This is the area at the very south of Marseille. A truly beautiful place, this particular one is calanque de Sormiou. Hard to believe it is just a short drive away from the city. This is where the sea meets some of the rugged mediterranean coast. I imagine the sea is filled with boats around summer time, exploring every bit of the coastline. I happen to be there around christmas, with a bit of wind and moody clouds. Probably not the most popular time to go without the sun warming the sea. But it makes no difference to me, beautiful place no matter the weather.
It’s been a while since my last post and oddly enough the blog has been getting more hits in my absence. These days I haven’t had much time to edit photos but here’s the one I did get my hands on. This is a pano shot of Marseille from Notre Dame de la Garde, which opens up a fantastic view of many parts of the city. Thanks to my very kind friend I got to spend christmas in Marseille and if my experience is anything to judge by the bad rep Marseille gets in France is not fully justified. To me it seemed a very diverse city with a lot of character and open people. I’ll be surely going back for more 🙂
