We’ll start in the oldest neighborhood in France, le Panier, where we’ll wind our way up the little streets stopping here and there to meet the craftsmen, culinary specialists and artists who will be happy to show us some of their gems which contribute to Marseille ‘s unique character.
Your guide will describe some of the legends and traditions dating from the Greeks to the Romans to modern day Marseille as we stroll along tasting sweet and savory delicacies. Pastis is the preferred aperitif here so we’ll visit a place where it is actually made right on the Old Port. It goes well with panis, one of their favorite snacks, which we’ll also try.
You’ll see historic buildings and peak in artists’ studios, if you like.
Marseille is famous for its soap and santons (figurines) so we’ll visit these proud, and rightly so, craftsmen and check out their wares.
La Canebiére, considered the Champs Elysées of Marseille , will lead us up to the Arab Market where you’ll be transported into another world of delights. You might think you’re in a souk in Morocco.
