A visit to an atypical and authentic Marseille
1. Cours Julien, street art on the move in Marseille
In the Notre-Dame-du-Mont district, the cours Julien is the artistic district par excellence in which street art is showcased. You’ll stroll through alleyways decorated with artists’ graffiti to discover artisanal boutiques with a bobo, vintage feel. An atypical spot in Marseille, the cours Ju is frequented both during the day for its restaurant terraces and in the evening for its festive, cosmopolitan atmosphere. Every Wednesday morning, a farmers’ and organic market awaits you to sample fresh, quality produce from local producers. If you wish, the Marseille Tourist Office offers guided tours on the theme of street art to find out more about the works on Cours Julien.
