Marseille, would have to be the oldest port city on the Mediteranean. Ihas been a crossroads of immigration and trade since its founding by the Greeks circa 600 B.C. I would expect Socce to be on many a menu, but I didn't know that when I passed through Marseille. Not being a fan of big cities I had attempted to skirt around the city on my way to Cassis, but alas, a combination of Me misreading the GPS, road works and fate I ended up in the thick of it. Hmmm Time for a cuppa. I park infront of the Windsor, got to be safe there!!
From the top of the station you could see right across the city to the Sea and quite a few of the cathedrals. The main one being Basilica
The. It has a huge museum, built over many of the Greek ruins. At the time that was quite a contentious issue.
