đź“Ť From Front, France
La Porte de L'Orient, or the 'Door of the Orient', is a large, ornamental archway in Marseille, France. Located on the outer wall of an old citadel, the archway is decorated with intricate carvings of lion heads, flowers and an inscription that reads 'Honneur, Patrie, Foyer -- Honor, Homeland, Hearth'. The archway is part of remnants of the 19th-century Vauban military fortress, whose ruins offer spectacular views of the Mediterranean Sea. Inside the citadel are a museum, a botanical garden, a botanist's house, and a chapel. Nature lovers can drive or cycle along the scenic scenic Calanques de Marseille, a coastal mountain range with stunning views of the ocean. Along with the old city of Marseille itself, visitors can explore the picturesque fishing village of Vallon des Auffes, take a boat trip out to sea to spot dolphins, and enjoy the vibrant nightlife of the city.
