We spent a day traveling from Florence via train along the coast and landed in Marseille at night. We stayed in a 5th floor studio apartment near the Old Port and had one day to explore. We walked to the port and luckily stumbled upon the daily fish market. It was the best - fishermen backed their boats right up along the dock and sold their catch out of the backs of their boats. We then stopped for lunch at the most charming and funky restaurant in an urban garden space called La Passarelle and shared a giant lamb shoulder roast. It was a good in-between spot with kind people and perfect weather.
