On our last day in France, we took the train to Avignon where to visit the Palais de Papes where popes used to reside before the Vatican. We also walked around the town exploring the small winding streets and stores. There weren't many options for lunch so we grabbed some sandwiches to go at La Mie Caline. Off we went on the train again, this time to Arles where we explored the ruins of two amphitheaters. It was a nice change of scenery with the Spanish influence of the city.
We headed back towards Marseille after a long day of exploring and took it easy. We didn't know where to have dinner and the concierge only suggest very spendy places. So we took our own chances and walked along the harbor again. We stopped in another restaurant at first but they didn't have any room to fit our large party. Instead, they walked us over to La Daurade explaining that it's very similar and good as well. So they put together some tables for us and we sat down.
Mr. Peanut Head also had a mixed seafood dish but this one with a creamy base. A whole fish along with mussels, snails, and clams. It was filling and satisfying.
