The Novel of Marseille

See the capital of Provence our way

In France eveyrone will tell you the same thing :
MARSEILLE is a universe in itself, a poem, a mystery, a singing accent, a problem to solve or a wonder to discover.
Each to his opinion because Marseille leaves nobody indifferent, what is sure is that with us you will see the city in a way like no other people do. Twentie six centuries of history made the Capital of Provence a place of strong temper and unique atmosphere. A tour that requires quite a lot of walking.

The iconic and the secret

LE PANIER, the last part left of the Old Marseille still has this unique atmosphere wich reminds us the rich past of a city founded 2600 years ago.
VALLON DES AUFFES, a typical fishermen port within the city.
OLD PORT andNOAILLES, the heart of Marseille; in the morning fishermen’s market to the evening with the typical cafés, passing by the north african atmosphere of Noailles.
GARDEN OF VESTIGES, urban excavations of the antique port of Marseille.

COURS JULIEN, in the heart of the street art district of Marseille, it is the meeting place of the youth of Marseille, enjoyable and purely unique.
FORT SAIN-JEAN, a medieval fort now part of a superb 21st century museum.
NOTRE-DAME-DE-LA-GARDE, the soul of Marseille. If you’re a local the”Good mother” will be in every sentence you say.
POINTE ROUGE, where you will take the boat (optional) to discover the coastline up to the fishermen district of Les Goudes at the entrance of the Calanques.
LES GOUDES, our favorite part of Marseille, all the flavors of the Mediterranean cultures can be found in this small district outside the city center. This is the place to have a real bouillabaisse (not included) with a view!

« In Marseille people think the city is the second french city… after Marseille » – French say
