Travel Log: Marseille, France

Our last port stop before heading back to Barcelona was Marseille, France. Marseille is the second largest city in France behind Paris and the largest city along the coast of the Mediterranean sea. We wanted to do a local tour by train but it was sold out by 2pm. Instead, we explored on our own and found many shops and department stores easily accessible from the Vieux Port.

Since we didn't do a tour, we were able to have a quick bite at a local eatery, La Chope d'Or. The food was pretty good considering it was on one of the main tourist strips. I had steak frites (steak and fries) and Hubs had Moules-Frites (mussels and fries). I preferred Hub's dish as the broth in the dish was so rich and flavorful. I was dipping bread pieces into the bowl to get ever last ounce of it. So good. I regretted not taking photos of it. I don't know if you can ever go wrong with French fare. The food is too good to pass up.
