Marseille is dotted with beautiful and historical neighborhoods. These neighborhoods feature numerous attractions that are visited by tourists in large numbers. This collection features some of the beautiful neighborhoods that should be visited while in Marseille.


Quartier du Panier

One of the city's oldest districts, the Panier (literally translated meaning "basket") is where the ancient Phocaeans first settled and founded the city of Massilia. Using the 18th-century Hôtel-Dieu and Notre Dame des Accoules church bell tower (17th-19th century) as reference points, these lead to the foot of Montée des Accoules - a series of steep flights of steps typical of old Marseilles - which lead right to the heart of the district and pedestrians' paradise. Once home to the ancient city's Greek agora (a public open space used for assemblies and markets), Place de Lenche still bustles with life and has its own market, restaurants and theater. At the summit of the old town is Place des Moulins, which in the 16th Century lived up to its name with no less than fifteen flour mills. These days its fountain and school help maintain its village square's tranquility and charm.

Les Goudes

Across a landscape of bare rock radiating a warmth of colours, you will reach the seaside village of Les Goudes in the far south of the ciy. The path you follow belongs to an age gone by and opens out onto a sweeping view of Marseilles with the Vieux-Port in the distance. This unusual panorama gives the area a character all its own, and a feeling of being at one with the sea where you can enjoy invigorating walks.
