The most famous island in Marseille is If owing to Alexandre Dumas’ adventure novel The Count of Monte Cristo. I would like to pay a one-day visit to this island, but the kids had no interest. They were more interested in the transportation than the destination. I guess that is the difference between adults and kids. Finally we decided to take a cruise to see the coast and islands. I could see the If island from the boat, they said.
Previously on Summer Holiday in Southern France (带着俩娃游南法 前情回顾):
- Day 1: Nice (第一天：尼斯)
- Day 2: Monaco (第二天：摩纳哥)
- Day 3: Cannes (第三天：戛纳)
- Day 4 and 5: Marseille (第四第五天：马赛)
Day 6 and 7. Cruise and swimming
There were two kinds of cruises available, so called the small cruise of 2.25 hours, and big cruise of 3.25 hours. The latter went half an hour farther. Considering that my younger kid might probably fall asleep, and everyone was tired on Day 6, we took the small cruise. We only sat in the boat and did not have to get up. It was an energy-saving day!
The kids were full of energy on Day 7. They were looking forward to playing on the beach. By taking Bus 19 we found a beach, which was not as good as the one in Cannes, but better than the one in Nice. At least there was sand rather than stones!
