A Walking Tour of Marseilles France
Photos for A Friend
November 11, 2010
This Hub is being produced in response to a request from our new friends David and Sue in England.
My wife, Bella, and I met them on our recent Mediterranean cruise and shared some good times with them on that cruise.
On that cruise we embarked from Barcelona, Spain on Monday and for the next six days made a stop at a different port city each day beginning with Tunis the capital of the North African nation of Tunisia and continuing on to Valetta the capital of the island nation of Malta, then to Mesina in Sicily, Rome, Genoa and Marseilles. Our trip ended seven days later in Barcelona.

Our friends had boarded in Genoa, Italy two days before us and ran into a heavy rain when they docked in Marseilles. As a result they stayed on the ship and missed that port.
My wife and I, on the other hand, had beautiful weather when we docked in Marseilles a week later so i promised that I would share my photos with our new friends. Instead of trying to upload this many photos to an email, I decided to publish them on HubPages instead especially since I had planned to write Hubs and publish my photos of our adventures on this trip anyway.
So here are photos from our walking tour of Marseilles.
