Calanque de Sugiton
There are so many of these coves to discover that an entire area has been designated as the Parc National des Calanques. One of the most accessible of these coves is Calanque de Sugiton. If you arriving to Marseille by train or coach, from the main station take the public transportation bus #20 or #21 to the University of Luminy.
Old Port of Marseille
4. Vieux-port (The old port of Marseille)My evening in Marseille ended with a stroll along the streets of this port which are well lit. You would be pleasantly surprised by the non-stop entertainment that has the visitors awestruck, at all times of the day. There is also some mouth watering street food. Especially if you love seafood, a spread awaits you. Try the bouillabaisse. I had to do away with the delicious desserts. To my delight, there was an entire street dedicated to sweets. I wasn't surprised by the diverse culture and cuisine in Marseille. It was after all a port side city that welcomed immigrants with open arms. The walk along the street had just so much to offer. I was glad that it even allowed me to catch a glimpse of the Marseille Cathedral. A cable car ride to the hilltop would have definitely been an ideal way to end the day. But there are some things which you must leave for a next time. My sweet tooth was satisfied at the end of one wonderful evening in the city. And this was enough to complete my visit to a lesser known piece of heaven, Marseille. Bonjour! =)
