  • It is the mythical thoroughfare of Marseille beautiful building Haussmann very cosmopolitan population have sometimes the impression of having to cross the Mediterranean

  • Having made this late October trip, I found a permanent insecurity of people who follow you to have money, money female clothes drying on the public domain and a clochardized population etc etc I recommend this area for women alone and especially at night.

  • La canebière is not very clean and don't gives not want for the ride. A beggar every 20 meters, waste everywhere it is sad we feel that this major thoroughfare goes into 2nd plan after the District of Joliette and another, fortunately the old port is nearby.
