La Canebière

Now a public transport hub, this avenue had its real heyday in the 1930s. Several plans to rehabilitate it have led to its renaissance, albeit in the vein of fast food restaurants and discount shops rather than luxury hotels. But it remains the emblematic thoroughfare of the city, where you can watch the multicultural working-class population go by. Several buildings serve as a reminder of its glorious past: between Rue St Ferréol and Cours Saint Louis, façades with Rococo decoration, a Baroque building on the corner of the Cours and two Second Empire buildings at nos 53 and 62 (Hôtel de Noailles).
