Where you'll be

Le Panier - the old town of Marseille, ancient narrow streets, old buildings mixed with historic 17th century buildings, street art, graffiti and some buildings old and neglected and full of charm. The Noailles, the traditional North African part of the city - again small narrow streets, street food, street vendors and small shops and bazaars. The the Canebière, the once elegant grand boulevard created by houseman to copy the capital city Paris.
