Marseille at night

Spent two weeks in southern France last month and found Marseille a most interesting city. Had a hotel overlooking the old port and after catching up on some sleep in the afternoon took a walk just after sunset.

The port from my hotel window.

That very window, in the Hotel Alize.

The street on the east side of the port, Quai Rive Neuve.

The oldest church in Marseille, Eglise Saint Ferreol.

A favorite restaurant and watering hole. The food was great, as was the beer. Brasseries are the French equivalent of the bars in Madrid where you can get breakfast, lunch, dinner, coffee and pastries, and beer and tapas anytime. You can't get breakfast here, though, because the French don't eat breakfast.

The fort on the east side of the port, Fort Saint-Nicolas. (There's another fort on the west side as well.)

These were all taken with a K200 and 16-45 lens. I used a monopod inside the hotel, but was too lazy to carry it around outside.

Hope you enjoy these.
