The heart of the old city

Located just by the old port, this is the historic quarter of Marseille with old narrow streets and tiny shops. Definitely worth a visit.

Enjoyed a walk around the artisan craft shops and cafes- lovely way to pass a holiday morning and even buy a gift or 2.

Atmospheric area ... unchanged. Enjoy the original Marseille ... narrow streets, interesting shops, etc. So close to the old port area ... easy access for everyone. Bring your camera for the happy memories.

Great place to see, so much to see. Walk around free and enjoy the atmosphere. Look around the shops, they have some interesting stuff there, great market places. Buy local craft from shops, always bargain, at times they raise prices for tourists. Look for squares around this area, where you could sit at a roadside café, if you are lucky... More

We stayed in the Panier area. Wonderful old buildings, lots of little shops and resturaunts. Within walking distance of the cathedral, port, lots of shopping. Beautiful city with lots of different types of cultural diversity.

We stayed in Le Panier, the oldest section of Marseille. It's probably not for everyone, but if you want to be in a real neighborhood and away from touristy parts of town, this is it. Tourists certainly do come here to soak up its local color, got to some of the interesting boutiques, or eat at some of the delightful... More

We just got lost in the small streets and alleys of this neighborhood and really enjoyed the walk as well as the shops encountered.

Interesting quarter of Marseille. Not exactly a place for wandering around at night - but interesting to see in the daytime. Plenty of cafes and restaurants on the more open streets.
