    I guess the Japanese coming from the other side of the world to see the Canebière because the Canebière is world famous how can it not be disappointed (very)? La Canebière he has imagined through images that we do know have disappeared. Finished cafes (kebabs and fast foods one behind the other), over the place of pleasant walk, dead any animation in the evening (as the activity disappeared it has artificially re-created it with a fire station, a police station, a school and a Training Institute...). Back to our Japanese coming to walk over the fields Élysées there no reason to feel "cheated on merchandise"? We will pass on incivility, beggars, pickpockets. Finally the place is dirty! Everyone contributes and nobody does anything. The businesses! The tourists! Strikes by garbage collection. It's not all of a streetcar and expand the sidewalks, so now "restore" the beautiful Canebière.

    La canebière is a place to avoid, dirty, poorly attended, street shops that don't quite want to back short inside a place that does not want to visit marseille.

    In a particularly hard sell, (the buyer having needs to bond after using a substitution with a defaulting purchaser friend clause) we have appreciated the efficiency and support of connection real estate La Canebière,. both in the management of the legal aspect as in the search for a new buyer and particularly hospitality and the availability of Mr Da Cruz, that we thank and his collaborators.

    Run this agency, many things you are hidden, or even reduced gravity. When you discover the poto rose, and you you desistez of purchase (which is your right) insults fly. We're attacking you on the phone, while playing on the string of loyalty... a joke... Agency to overhaul from top to bottom. Or maybe a training in communication for some employees. Attention to frail and manipulable, avoid this mare to the sharks. For my part, they fell on a bone. Too bad for them.

Where to stay in Marseille

The Old Port is near the water, seafood restaurants, and the not-to-be-missed museums. Hotels with sea views come with a price tag to match, though. For more affordable accommodations and local character, check out hostels and rental apartments in the Panier district. The Canebière neighborhood is in the heart of the action. For a more nature-oriented locale, a hotel near Garde Hill offers the nearby botanical gardens.
