Marseille in the summer

During our holiday at the Cote d'Azur (French Rivera) we went 1 day to Marseille. Because of traffic jams we arrived late : at 13:00. We stayed till 22:00 in the evening. Unless the little time we enjoyed very much. Here my pictures:



1.





2.





3. Cours Honore d'Estienne d'Orves, near the Vieux Port (Old Harbor).






4. The Opera house (building left)





5. Palais de Bourse (stock exchange).





6.





7.





8. We took the metro to the Velodrome stadium, the home of l'Olympique Marseille.




9.





10. In the distance you see big towerblocks (La Rouviere ?)





11.





12.





13.





14.





15.





16.





17.





18. Back in the city-center





19.






20. Shoppingstreet.





21.





22. Rue d'Aix with in the distance the Arch.





23.





24.





25.





26. Picture 26 and 27 : a 'Hausmann' building in good and bad conditions.





27.





28. Le Pannier, an old neighbourhood north of the Vieux Port.





29.





30.





31.





32.





33.





34. The Vieux Port and on top of the hill the Notre Dame de la Garde. Because of constructions you don't see the port itself..




A. At this picture you see the Vieux Port from the hill of the Notre Dame. In the distance you can see the new port. This picture is took during my visit in 2007.






35. Buidling on the Canabiere, a major road in the city center.





36.





37.





38. Cours St. Jullien. A few of my impressions : people chill with a bottle of wine an enjoy the music, multicultural Marseille plays football, people buy vegetables at the market : a very relaxing place!






39.




40.





41.




42.




43.





44.




45. Marseille @ night, time to leave the city..

Beautiful pictures of a beautiful city. I think it is a bit underrated because of its bad reputation.
