  • The Canabiere had good days. Lined with terrace of pretty chic cafes, nice shops, she presented a homogeneous architecture and she saw all the end of the day, from May to October, thousands of Marseille walk along its wide sidewalks. In short, a Marseille pride which manifested by a quip "The Canebière is the Champs Elysées and better". Today we talk to rehabilitate the Canebière but is it already too late? She is so paupérisée is. Its modern architecture (often very ugly) and his restorations were anarchic... worse, its markets good bazaars and ugly plastic chairs lining his shabby cafes, its low range football fast, debris everywhere... This incredible sloppiness, disgraced Marseille. It became neglected and even a little dangerous artery (pickpocketing... small delinquency... small traffic..) etc.). A very poor image for visitors!

  • It's better than 15 years ago but there is still a job. Dirty signs gave way to shops and banks. The tramway adds to the table.

  • A lot of potential, but what a waste. Dilapidated streets dirty, buildings and so on. The Champs-Elysées Marseille deserve one cleaning and renovation.
