    In a colorful effervescence, dive into the Mediterranean cultures and discover the different stalls. Once you have crossed the boulevard Garibaldi, you reach the rue du Théâtre Français.

    In a colorful effervescence, dive into the Mediterranean cultures and discover the different stalls. Once you have crossed the boulevard Garibaldi, you reach the rue du Théâtre Français. Italian style theater and baptized for a time "French theater" to mark its vocation dedicated to the French literature.

    Then you reach the upper part of the Canebière again. There we find a self-service book terminal in the shape of a giraffe to pay homage to the famous Zarafa, evoked in the urban stroll that leads to the Prefecture and the Monument aux Mobiles which celebrates the soldiers of the Garde Mobile of the Franco-Prussian war of 1870.

    At the very end of the Canebière, you find yourself facing the Saint-Vincent de Paul church, nicknamed "les Réformés" because it is located on the site of the chapel of the Augustins Réformés. Its 2 spires rise 70 meters above the Canebière.

    As you walk up the majestic avenue of plane trees on boulevard Longchamp, you will see on your right the mansion that houses the Grobet-Labadie museum. To end this urban stroll, you can discover the Palais Longchamp which was built to celebrate the arrival of the waters of the Durance in Marseille. Discover also its museums and its English garden.
