This is an amazing part of the city, where not so many people are heading to. Access to the see, you can sit down for a coffee break... place to visit..!

Pretty little fishing village, with so steps to get down to the harbour. Disappointed that there wasn't anywhere we could just sit and have a drink of coffee or cold beer. The was a restaurant but you had to eat the too.

While visiting marseille there are many small places like le vallon that you can visit if you have plenty of time but not in short trips. It is old vintage but you wont be missing a lot if you skip it.

The Vallon des Auffes is a very nice little place with a small harbor, a sea water natural swimming pool, some really nice restaurants. You can walk there from the Pharo gardens or Saint Voctor church. Very good place to finish the day.

A fantastic quartier of Marseille to visit. Plenty of restaurants and bars and nice to get away from the main busier areas such as Vieux Port.
