We wrapped up the cruise in Barcelona, Spain, but we had one final stop in Marseille, France before we arrived. The highlight in Marseille was taking "Le Petit Train" around the city, with a stop at the highest point, the Notre Dame de la Gard. I realized that my favourite moments in sightseeing are either on the water (like the Cote d'Azur), or at a high elevation to enjoy the best views. The photos can't really give the same "top of the world" feeling you get when you're there in person, staring out over the buildings and sea.
The Notre Dame de la Gard was very beautiful inside - more bright and colourful than most cathedrals we had been in.
