“Marseilles, full of life and energy. Marseilles, the younger sister of Tyre and Carthage that has succeeded them in the empire of the Mediterranean. Marseilles, that with age increases in vigor and strength.” – The Count of Monte Cristo.
I was doing some research on which part of Europe I should visit on my trip next year. I have always felt intrigued with Marseilles after reading the classical French novel Le Comte de Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas (translated version, of course). And it is located along the French Riviera, which also intrigues me.
I suppose you’ll see next year if I do indeed visit here…
