P365 TE Day 113

Port of Marseilles



My European Vacation is over, so it's back to the grind for me, but I can still dream...

Travel Bite: Marseilles is the second largest port in France, and is known as the gateway to Provence. I went for a weekend when I lived in France and I loved hanging out at the restaurants and cafes along the old Vieux Port. From here you can see all the way to Notre Dame de la Garde, as pictured above.

From the port, you can easily have a ferry to bring you to one of the many beaches around.

Some bonus trivia: Did you know that Zinedine Zidane is from Marseilles?

P365 TE Day 112

Crepes from Breizh Cafe



Travel Bite: Last year, I went to Paris to eat, and to drink overpriced coffee, and just relax in my favorite city in the world. In my To Eat List, I found some places that I love so much, I absolutely need to go back every time I find an excuse to go to Paris, and the Crepes from Breizh Cafe make that cut.

Pictured above is La Campagnarde, it has cheese, mushrooms, potatoes, creme fraiche, and smoked duck breast.

P365 TE Day 111

Eric Kayser Artisanal Baguettes



Travel Bite: A trip to Paris is not complete without getting my fix of Freshly Baked Artisanal Baguettes from Eric Kayser. He has numerous branches across the city (and worldwide), and yet, the quality - in Paris at least remains consistent.

You can read my post on Eric Kayser Paris here, and on Eric Kayser in New York here. There is also a branch in the Philippines I haven't tried, I am not sure if they have resolved the French butter sourcing issue that I have heard about.

P365 TE Day 110

Stained Glass from Notre Dame Cathedral



Travel Bite: Since it's Easter, I'm doing a post on one of my favorite churches, the beautiful Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. You'll need to enter to fully appreciate the stained glass windows and separate "chapels" like the one pictured above, situated all around the Church.

P365 TE Day 109

Stained Glass Dome of Galleries Lafayette




Travel Bite: I see the beauty and culture in shopping. But honestly, if you visit the Galleries Lafayette on Haussmann, and you look up, you'll see it too.

While you're there, don't forget to grab some Pierre Herme Macarons, and visit their Cafe at one of the top floors. There's a really nice view of Paris from there. You'll even be able to see the Eiffel Tower.

P365 TE Day 108

View of Paris from Montmarte



Travel Bite: Hello Paris! One of my favorite places in Paris is Montmarte, where you get a wonderful view of the French Capital City. On a nice day, I can just sit here, listen to the buskers play their music, and watch as life in one of my favorite places in the world goes by.

P365 TE Day 107

View of Ponte Vecchio from the Uffizi



Travel Bite: This is a very beautiful view of the Arno River and Ponte Vecchio from The Uffizi Gallery (one of the places where Photography is allowed).

Ponte Vecchio is an old bridge in Florence, known as the Gold Sellers bridge. You can come here to buy Jewelry with Florentine designs, however some have warned that the stores are mostly over-priced tourist traps. When I went the last time, I looked at Jewelry stores around and some have fair prices, so just shop with caution. If you know what you want and how much you're willing to pay for it, it shouldn't hurt.
