Photo du Jour - Colors of Marseille


Faded sign in le Panier.

This quirky quartier, one of the oldest in Marseille, is a maze of narrow streets and steep staircases lined with colorful old houses, art and craft galleries, cafés and restaurants.

Le Panier's current claim to fame - it's the backdrop for the popular night time French soap opera, Plus Belle la Vie (often called PBLV). Pin It

I like the way the German version says "live like God in Provence" -- obviously a reference to the German saying "Leben wie Gott in Frankreich", meaning to live a good life.

My friends thought I was a bit strange to be taking photos of all the old, faded signs around town. I love them!

Many would agree that you do live like a god in Provence!
