  • Emblem of the marseillle once the canebière in recent years fell into disrepair. Nice brasseries and cinemas have disappeared leaving the place has snacks and rotten stores (bravo déferre them and including Vigouroux)! In recent years the municipality has worked to win her back and restore but the task is hard not to say impossible! If the canebière she even found an aesthetic and interesting signs nearby streets remain affected, sales and ownership of shops and snacks low neighborhood, attracting a population so that it squattera the sector will escape the barge or Walker on Sunday! Gone are the days where it survey by strolling street of rome or St fe was a pleasure...

  • Nothing fancy, a long avenue that starts/ends at the port of Marsiglia.Si can find all kinds of shops, being a multiethnic area and nearly one must be also careful we say that doesn't offer anything special apart from some church, Mc Donalds and something else ...

  • The largest avenue of Marseille, as in all big cities in general. There are too many people.
