    * Turn right onto rue Francis Davso which leads to the Cours Estienne d'Orves. A real city within the city, the Arcenaulx were the former warehouses of the arsenal of the royal galleys at the time of Louis XIV. Today, this Italian-style square is an attractive district with its cafés, restaurants and artists' galleries.

    * Parallel to this is the Rue Sainte, which leads to the Abbaye Saint-Victor, join it. Stop at the Four des Navettes, the oldest bakery in Marseille (1781) where you can taste the navettes, a dry orange blossom cookie typical of Marseille and very popular with gourmets. To the right of the Bertie Albrecht square, enjoy the panoramic view of the Old Port and the old city.

    * Then head for Fort Saint-Nicolas (17th century), the work of the Chevalier de Clerville. During the construction of the Palais du Pharo, the fort was cut in two, in order to create an access road and that is why today, Fort Saint-Nicolas is composed of Fort d'Entrecasteaux for the upper part and Fort Ganteaume for the lower part.

    * When you arrive in front of the gates of the Palais du Pharo, cross the public garden which offers other magnificent views of Marseille.
