Day 7: Marseille

I was super excited to be able to spend some time in France on this trip.  We were there a couple days after a terrorist attack in Nice, so we wanted to make sure that we were extra safe while we were there. 
As the boat was pulling in to port, I couldn't for the life of me figure out what all of the little dots in the water were.  It took me a long time to figure out that they were boats! 

We took a scenic bus tour excursion this day and saw some great things!

In front of the Palais Longchamps.

I just love how they build here.

I was super excited when we saw the Chateau D'If where the Count of Monte Cristo is based out of.  I love that movie.

Marseille was gorgeous.

We had a couple hours to shop on our own.  I really want to eat at a French bakery.  A real one...not a touristy one.  We found one and it was delicious.

I had to buy a baguette.  The boat security made me put it through the security scanner.  :)

That night we played some music trivia.  We actually played a lot of trivia while we were on the boat.  These Scottish guys always won and gave us their hats...because they had probably 20 of them!

You should read the book (The Count of Monte Cristo). One of my favorites! You saw a ton more than we did in Marseille. I'll have to go back I guess!
