Old Port (Vieux Port)

MAT-20170810213756-4072-1024x682

Located in the exact spot where the city was founded, the old port of Marseille (meeting point for the Marseille Free Walking Tour), it is still a very busy place, specially after Marseille was chosen as the European Capital of Culture in 2013.

 

To get there you just have to take the metro 1 (blue line) and get off at the sation Vieux Port, but you can go also by bus and tramway.

 

Once you are at the old port, if you are looking towards the sea, on your right you’ll have the oldest neighborhood in Marseille called « Le Panier », which you can visit with us! but the nightlife goes on at the south part of the port, to your left.

Le « Quai de Rive Nueve » is the perfect place to make a pub crawl thanks to its irish pubs:

Rue Sainte

Just 2 minutes away from the Old Port, there is la rue Sainte (Sainte street). This place has been changing a lot since the last 2 years becaming one the main places where to get together with your friend and have a drink (a bit more chic that the « Cours Julien » and the Old Port, though).

 

You’ll be able to find good restaurants and bars all along the street.

La Plaine - Cours Julien

We are talking about the surroundings of « La Plaine » square (officialy « Place Jean Jaurès ») and « Le Cours Julien », right at the Exit Notre Dame du Mont of the metro 2 (red line).

 

One of the most lively places of Marseille, it is also an artistic neighborhood thanks the graffs decorating most of its walls, to all the artist settled here and to the live music you may find around.

 

During the day you can have lunch or just enjoy a cup of coffee in one of all the bars and restaurants in site and during the night go to a concert or get ready to have some drinks while crawling from bar to bar.

We recomend you:

La Joliette

From the « Docks » commercial center until the « Fort Saint Jean », La Joliette is one of the new places where to go out in Marseille (during the week-end).

Its location right next to the Old Port makes it very accesible by foot or public transport. You should take the metro 2 (red line), get off at Joliette station and walk along the seaside towards the Old Port.

 

Or take any bus going towards the Mucem or Fort Saint Jean, like bus 60, 49 or 82, get off at « La Major » bus stop and you’ll be right there.

 

Under the beautiful Marseille’s cathedral and right next to the sea, you can find two or three bars, some restaurants, a night club and a great rooftop party at the « Terrasses du Port » commercial center (during high season).

 

Even if it is not a very crowded spot yet, you can spend some good times with good beer and friends.
