Well, I'm not sure of names of places, but you must have Pastis at a cafe/bar somewhere, number one. Pastis is an anise flavored alcholic drink, and it is really tasty. Or a demi peche- white beer flavored with peach syrup!

I only went through it briefly on the way to somewhere else, but it is huge!! I would have loved to see more of the old town, and the Chateau d'If. I think you can't really go wrong with wherever you go there it is such a charming place.

Take lots of pictures!! :tup:

l'epuisette has amazing food :drool: they're closed until the 2nd so they'd open a few days before you arrive! i was only in marseille for a day so i can't really help with much, but there is a small fashion museum in case you'd be interested in that.

I'm sorry but all I know of Marseille is that the awesome Zinedine Zidane was born and raised there. It sounds so romantic with a minibreak, have fun! The good thing about minibreaks is that you don't have to do too much packing.

It's been about a decade since I was there but at the time, they had a branch of Galleries Lafayette, the French department store. Also, if you're a seafood lover, have bouillabaisse - it's a fish stew that originates from Marseille. I had it at a restaurant at the port and it was fantastic - wish I could remember the name, but it was so long ago.

Have a great time!

Miramar, I think that's the place where I had it, too.

Sounds like you had a great time! :smile:
