Clearly we remained at the recently opened Intercontinental Marseille Hotel Dieu which is a wonderful noteworthy building that has turned into a vacation destination in Marseille since the inn opened; it was the old doctor’s facility so various ex doctor’s facility staff and local people alike are going to.
The rooms themselves are excessively dull for my preferring notwithstanding in the event that you do get a Port view room (certainly justified regardless of the additional cost) the view is beyond words as you investigate the Vieux Port and the Notre Dame de la Garde and it’s a view you will never feel worn out on. I have various photographs to demonstrate it!
The Terrace rooms give you the chance to arrange room administration and they will come in and set up a table for you on your porch (as underneath).
My most loved perspective of the Hotel was during the evening, it’s simply marvelous and this photograph doesn’t do it equity.
The Le Capian Bar is a pleasant territory to take a brassy mixed drink (they have an awesome choice of Champagne mixed drinks for the young ladies) and to take in the perspectives from the patio.
The lodging has a Spa by Clarins and G went for a profound tissue rub before we cleared out and said it was unquestionably profound tissue! The medicines are expensive (yet you expect this at an inn in addition to a Clarins spa). The swimming pool is allowed to use for the visitors however tragically you have to pay to utilize the hamman and steam rooms at an expense of €20 a day. Every one of the toiletries in the rooms are Clarins.
2013 is Marseille’s year as it is the joint European Capital of Culture with Kosice in Slovakia, while most urban areas simply toss on a couple of shows and shows, Marseille accepted the open door to tidy up the Old Town territory and it was cash well spent. Relatively consistently there is another presentation or show to observe so you won’t get exhausted while going to.
Lamentably like the genuine elephants, the elephant above has additionally lost its tusks!
I do like screwy workmanship presentations (however hate the Tate Modern, yes I said it!) and we chose to visit the Musee Regards de Provence which had a few extremely fascinating showcases and a dead Mickey Mouse!
Furthermore, I thought I had enormous feet, my Topshop expressive dance pads are as yet going solid! The second combine of these shoes are securely tucked in the back of the shoe room until required.
The Musee Regards de Provence is situated in the Le Panier territory of Marseille which was my most loved piece of town, with its tight little avenues with pastel hued structures, garments gliding in the breeze, adorable little blooms hanging off the window screens; fundamentally all I required was a man playing an accordion wearing a breton stripe best and I would have passed on cheerful!
One outing I was extremely looking forward as well when going by Marseille was a vessel trek to the Calanques National Park however because of the Mistral wind (it’s the celebrated Provence wind) we couldn’t take any watercraft excursions to the Calanques as they were wiped out; which I was gutted about. Our attendant prescribed Croisieres Marseille Calanques for the vessel trip and the begin point is at the Vieux Port.
Be that as it may we took a stumble on the Petit Train up to the Notre Dame de la Garde which sits sitting above Marseille offering outstanding amongst other vantage purposes of the city as it sits on the most noteworthy point in Marseille. The prepare takes you along the Coastal street, at that point ends up through the restricted lanes of Marseille; for €8 pp it’s not a terrible arrangement particularly on a warm day as I wouldn’t extravagant the stroll up. You get finish 360 degree perspectives of this awesome city.
