A week ago we made a quick trip to meet a friend in Marseilles. The city is big and full of energy- it reminds me of NYC where I lived for 10 years. It’s the second or third largest city in France (depending on who you talk to) and has the largest port in France. The location on the Mediterranean is truly unique and astounding.
The first night we walked around and had dinner in a neighborhood called La Plaine. It’s high up on one of the seven hills of Marseilles, but our friend told us that La Plaine translates as “the valley”!?!
There are many bars, restaurants and shops and it’s considered to be the cool and trendy part of Marseilles. I was entranced by the storefront and building art-any available space is covered with artistic paintings. Here’s a few of my favorites!
