“If you come in Marseille you have to get there ! Notre dame de la Garde is a church dedicated to Marie which is on the top of a higher mount in Marseille. From a Christian site, it has become for all Marseille inhabitants, a kind of symbol of the city whatever religion they follow, if ever they follow one. Most important, from its foot you can see a panorama of all the city, it is really wonderful. You can get there by car, bus, touristic train, taxi , but remember that the last hundred meters have to be walked on foot and to make a wish once up there ! ”

“From the Réformé church (up the Canebière) you can follow the Boulevard Longchamp where you can see nice example of old upper-class buildings to arrive to Palais Longchamp. The palais is worth visiting though it won't take you long. You can visit the "musee des beaux arts" as well as the natural history museum.”

“C'est à 15mn en voiture de Fondeluygne (15mn by car of the cottage). Une ballade inoubliable (this is An unforgettable ballad). Les falaises d'ocre sont un lieu Provençal incontournable (The cliffs of Ochre are an Provençal place to be seen). Celles de Roussillon aussi mais beaucoup plus touristiques (Those of Roussillon also but much more tourist). A voir sur le site/ To see on the web site :”
