Marseille, France

Marseille is a city on the Mediterranean coast of France, pop. 850,000 (metro 1.6 m), founded 2,600 years ago by the Greeks. Here are some pics that I have been taking over the past few days.

Some general views of the city (unfortunately it was raining on that day).






This was during the recent strikes in France so these ships were all waiting at anchorage for port activities to resume






The above photos were taken from the basilica of Notre-Dame de la Garde (the highest point of the city), built in 1854.


The basilica still retains pockmarks from WWII combats

The city has a chaotic type of beauty...Naples, Italy-style.
