After work on my last Friday in Marseille, I scurried down to Vieux Port for my Manicure – which in France – is done very well.

Then, I wandered to the old town of Marseille called “Le Panier” which means “the basket”, because during Greek and then Roman rule, it was a marketplace.

Pastel coloured buildings, narrow streets, and no cars made it a pleasant place to wander. There are murals, working workshops, little boutiques and restaurants, and in the side streets, people hanging their washing to dry, on lines under their windows decorated with potted geraniums! It’s really as pretty as a picture.
