Highly recommended
Europe's Capital of Culture in 2013, and showcased to the full by Mucem, its cultural emblem, Marseille continues to transform its image along its Mediterranean façade, in particular thanks to the new buildings in the La Joliette district. This section of the city adds to its enthralling atmosphere, which includes the Vieux-Port, the beating heart of the city; Le Panier, with its Italian-Corsican feel; the markets in Noailles and Belsunce; the Canebière, which is doing its utmost to renew the city's connection with its glorious past; the Corniche and its aristocratic villas; and its tiny creeks.

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.
