Parc of the 26 centuries, Marseille

Scotters waiting for the lights, Marseille

Marseille’s idealistic Parc of the 26 Centuries, celebrating the city’s history through three millennia, contrasted with the reality of Marseille traffic: scooters weaving round cars and all waiting for the off at the lights at Cours Honoré-d’Estienne-d’Orves.

The archeological garden of the antique port of Marseille.

 And a view of the remains of the dockside quays of the Phoenician port from 26 centuries ago: it’s not often you see two and a half thousand years of history in one view. What will this view be in 4618 AD?
