Marseille
The Essential
Highly recommended
Straddling East and West, Europe and Africa, Marseille is a fabulous melting pot of cultures in evidence around the Vieux Port, the old town's beating heart; in the neighbourhood of Le Panier, with its narrow streets reminiscent of Corsica; in the markets of Noailles or Belsunce influenced by the Near East; La Canebière, where hints of a glorious past remain; the Corniche and its grand villas; and the tiny creeks that you suddenly spot at the end of narrow streets. Mucem, its cultural pride and joy incarnates its newfound youthful air.

Le Panier, a stroll through the old Marseille

Built on the site of the ancient Greek Massalia, the Panier is a typically Mediterranean district with colour-washed facades. The historic refuge of seafarers and generations of immigrants, the Panier is a peaceful haven, still working-class.
