  • Of course there's the song but that's about all... Worth, dirty, not always very respectable, the famous street only has interest for their bearings in Marseille.

  • gone are the days where we played bocce on the Canetiere, it is only a memory of Pagnol. now, shops, lots of Turkish snacks or something. a lot of cars, so pollution... little interest in fact

  • La Canebière is badly crowded day and night, many traffics are also day and night, there is absolutely nothing to do, the street is particularly dirty, I find that it's really the bad image of Marseille which unfortunately continues. Nothing has been done to give the street its letters of nobilities of yesteryear. I highly recommend this tour especially for families with children.
