In the South of France

 In the South of France

Just a half-hour’s drive from Aix is the harbor city of Marseille, where fishermen gather at the ancient quay to sell their catches, sharing space with pleasure crafts and cruise ships. The uphill climb to Le Panier, Marseille’s oldest neighborhood, is worth every step; the reward is buildings with colorful façades, inviting cafés, and flowers everywhere.
