Dawn Princess – Venice to Sydney August 2013 – Post 9

Barcelona 7/9

This city, although still quite crowded with tourists, is a wonderful place to visit. Beautiful, clean, tree-lined streets, great architecture and cafes with delicious food are in abundance. Another ‘must return someday’ city.

Another cruise ship berthing.

Some of the famous architecture is an acquired taste.
The extraordinary Sagrada Familia. Unfortunately, having not bought an entry ticket on-line, I would have had to queue for over two hours to get in. Next time.
The queue stretching around three sides of the block.


Marseille 7/9

This port didn’t particularly grab me. It was ok but as far as seedy, Mediterranean seaports go, I much preferred Naples.

Marseilles has the largest yacht basin I've seen.

Notre Dame cathedral.
